Hulu Is New Home To George Clooney's CATCH-22

Hulu has ordered a six-episode "Catch-22" limited series, which Clooney will star in, direct, and produce.

The deal is not yet closed, but sources tell Variety that the streaming service is preparing to offer a substantial commitment to the project.

The series landed at the streaming service following a bidding war that ensued when Paramount TV and Anonymous Content's development of the project was announced late past year.

Catch-22 is set in Italy during World War II, a time period that Clooney has explored before in his film Monuments Men and in Steven Soderbergh's The Good German.

Sini Mathews has not been charged with any other charges at this time but has been indicted on the child abandonment charge. If convicted on the capital murder charge, Wesley Mathews faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

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.

The role will mark Clooney's first regular television role since he broke out on the medical drama "E.R." in the early 1990s.

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. Mike Nichols directed the film with Buck Henry adapting the novel for the screen. The "Catch-22" of the title refers to the fact that anyone who is crazy can't be cleared to fly a combat mission, but anyone who claims to be crazy in order to get out of flying these missions is showing a rational concern for their own well-being, and thus cannot be crazy.so may continue to fly missions.
