Tune in to HBO this Sunday to catch the premiere of Bill Hader’s “Barry” edited by Jeff Buchanan.

“Bill Hader and Alec Berg’s series is highly entertaining and acutely heartbreaking, and that’s pretty damn special.” – Ben Travers, Indiewire

“[Barry] takes the tired trope of hit-man-with-a-heart and turns it into something darker, rawer, and intermittently heartbreaking. It does this while remaining a comedy.” – Sophie Gilbert, The Atlantic

“It’s a comedy, really, and it balances all the Hollywood satire, character comedy, and noir tendencies beautifully. It’s filled with smart choices. Each perfectly cast character has a twist that places him or her outside of conventionality.” – Matthew Gilbert, Boston Globe

“Barry scores as a wildly original and sensationally entertaining hybrid of dark comedy and delirious action. … Barry kills–in every way imaginable.” – Matt Roush, TV Guide
