HuluClooney

George Clooney is returning to his TV roots. The former E.R. star will be directing and starring in a limited series based on Joseph Keller's satirical World War II novel Catch-22.

Grant Heslov, who co-founded Smokehouse Pictures with Clooney in 2016, is also set to direct and exectuive produce the series.

It focuses on Capt. John Yossarian, a US Air Force bombardier who is furious because the bureaucratic rule known as Catch-22, which specifies that a concern for one's own safety in the face of dangers which are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind; a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly unsafe combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty. His boss, Colonel Cathcart (Clooney), ups the number of missions his men must fly before their service is up. 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. He joins Hulu when the streaming service is riding high, having just won Golden Globes for "The Handmaid's Tale".

This will be Clooney's first major foray back into television since leaving the NBC drama ER when that series ended in 2009.

Davies brought up Heller's novel, which the trio agreed would benefit from a longer treatment than the two hours in Mike Nichols' 1970s feature.
