The Trailer for “Catch-22” is here, the upcoming satirical dark comedy miniseries, based on the novel of the same name by Joseph Heller.
The series stars Christopher Abbott, Kyle Chandler, Hugh Laurie, and George Clooney, who is also set to executive produce alongside Grant Heslov, Luke Davies, David Michôd, Richard Brown, and Steve Golin.
Clooney is at his best in the trailer, barking orders in his role as Scheisskopf, along with Christopher Abbott as Yossarian, a bombardier trapped in the maddening military bylaw, and Kyle Chandler as the power-hungry Colonel Cathcart.
The six-episode series is written by Luke Davies, who wrote Lion, and David Michôd, who wrote War Machine.
While Catch 22 has been adapted for the big screen and a television pilot, this will be the first full TV series based on the Joseph Heller novel.
In addition to staring in the show, Clooney will direct alongside Grant Heslov, who produced Argo.
Hulu’s adaptation of the classic novel Catch 22, directed by and starring George Clooney, premieres May 17th.
