Clooney to make TV comeback with Catch-22 miniseries

Hulu has picked up the George Clooney limited series based on Joseph Heller's 1961 novel Catch-22 from Anonymous Content and Paramount TV.

According to Deadline, Catch-22 originated a couple of years ago when Brown, following the first season of True Detective, which he executive produces, sat down with Lion writer Davies and Animal Kingdom and War Machine writer-director Michôd, who are longtime friends, to discuss properties the Aussie duo would like to tackle in a similar limited series format.

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.

Clooney, 56, will star in the role of Colonel Cathcart. Clooney will also be co-directing with long-time creative partner Grant Heslov.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed. Yossarian wants to get out of flying, but can only do so if he claims insanity.

The late Mike Nichols directed the 1970 adaptation of the book written by Buck Henry, which starred a young Alan Arkin (who starred in the Clooney-produced Argo) and an ensemble that includes Martin Balsam (who played Clooney's character), Richard Benjamin, Art Garfunkel, Bob Newhart, Anthony Perkins, Martin Sheen and Henry.
