CATCH 22: Trailer Reveals George Clooney’s Hulu Series Based on Joseph Heller’s Novel
Hulu has released the first Catch-22 trailer for the upcoming limited series adaptation of Joseph Heller’s seminal novel. The six-episode series hails from director and executive producer George Clooney, who also has a supporting role in the cast (he originally took a lead role, but recast himself with Kyle Chandler so he had more time to focus on directing the episodes). Girls alum Christopher Abbott stars as Yossarian, a U.S. Air Force bombardier in World War II who is furious not only at the enemy who continues trying to kill him, but also at his own army which regularly puts him in harm’s way.
All six episodes of Catch-22 will debut on Hulu on May 17th.
