Catch-22 Trailer

George Clooney has dabbled with wartime satire as the producer and star of The Men Who Stare at Goats, but now he’s fully leaning into the unexpected comedy that comes from World War II with a series adaptation of Joseph Heller’s classic novel Catch-22.

Hulu is behind the Catch-22 series, which follows the adventures and misadventures of a US air squadron in Italy during the historical global war. Christopher Abbott stars in the series as a bombardier who isn’t too happy that thousands of people want to kill him even though they don’t even know him. But the larger problem is that the Air Force keeps increasing the number of missions men must fly in order to complete their service. And there doesn’t seem to be any way out. Watch the Catch-22 trailer below to see the kind of madness he has to deal with. Read More »

catch-22 teaser

George Clooney is a bad lieutenant, but hopefully a good director and executive producer of the upcoming Hulu miniseries based off Joseph Heller’s classic satirical novel, Catch-22.

Clooney pulls triple duty as the director and executive producer the series with partner Grant Heslov (Good Night and Good Luck), and as the Lieutenant (later Colonel and eventually General) Scheisskopf, whose ambition and odd fixation on parades present a major obstacle for Christopher Abbott‘s protagonist Captain John Yossarian. And both Clooney and Abbott, as well as stars Kyle Chandler and Hugh Laurie, take center stage in the first Catch-22 teaser released by Hulu.
