George Clooney is bringing Joseph Heller’s iconic novel Catch-22 to Hulu this May in a new six-episode series. Christopher Abbott stars as Yossarian, a bombardier during World War II who is obsessed with staying alive but the rules and bureaucracy of the military decreases his chances every time he goes up. The titular rule states that if you fly your missions, you’re crazy, and don’t have to fly them; all you have to do is ask. But if you ask not to, then you’re sane, and so you have to fly them. Hugh Laurie and Clooney co-star and Clooney directed the six episodes alongside Grant Heslov and Ellen Kuras. The series starts on May 17th on Hulu and you can check out the trailer below.
