Storyline

Disillusioned at the thought of taking down another "mark," depressed, low-level hit man Barry Berkman seeks a way out. When the Midwesterner reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an actor who is bedding a mobster's wife, little does Barry know that the City of Angels may be his sanctuary. He follows his target into acting class and ends up instantly drawn to the community of eager hopefuls, especially dedicated student Sally, who becomes the object of his affection. While Barry wants to start a new life as an actor, his handler, Fuches, has other ideas, and the hit man's criminal past won't let him walk away so easily. Written by Jwelch5742

Barry's dream life as an actor
9 April 2018 | by paulapresleySee all my reviews

Another great HBO series, love it. Barry is such a relate-able character with a great support cast I'm hooked. This is dark comedy at its best as Barry and minder get deeper and deeper into trouble i cant wait to see how he maneuvers his way to his dream life as an actor.
