Hulu is making a Catch-22 miniseries with George Clooney

George Clooney Returning to TV in Hulu's Catch-22'

George Clooney's adaptation of Joseph Heller's classic novel Catch-22 is coming to Hulu, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The story, set in Italy during World War II, follows Captain John Yossarian, a U.S. Air Force bombardier, and the other airmen in his camp, who attempt to maintain their sanity while fulfilling their service requirements so they can return home. Richard Brown and Steve Golin will executive produce for Anonymous Content along with Clooney and Heslov under their Smokehouse Pictures banner.

Clooney will play Colonel Cathcart in the story of Capt. John Yossarian, a U.S. Air Force bombardier who keeps being sent on risky missions to complete his service. (Clooney will reportedly be co-writing the final episode with the duo.) Along with directing the show, he'll also play the role of Colonel Cathcart, the commanding officer who keeps increasing Yossarian's missions. The series is being eyed for an early 2018 shoot.

Another factor in the FCA move is the Trump administration's threat to walk away from the American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The company said roughly 60,000 hourly and salaried American workers will receive an additional $2,000, according to Reuters.

This will be Clooney's first regular television role in almost 20 years, according to Entertainment Tonight.

First announced in November, Clooney will star in the six-episode straight-to-series order based on a script by Luke Davies (Lion) and David Michôd (who directed Clooney in War Machine for Netflix). The only way for a pilot to get out is to prove that he's mentally unfit to fly, but not wanting to continue flying risky missions proves a rational mind which means he's capable of flying. It was previously adapted for the screen in Mike Nichols' 1970 film starring Alan Arkin and Orson Welles.
