George Clooney Is a Brutal Lieutenant in First 'Catch-22' Trailer

George Clooney is a bad lieutenant, but hopefully a good director and executive producer of the upcoming Hulu miniseries based off Joseph Heller's classic satirical novel, Catch-22.

Based on Joseph Heller's novel of the same name, Catch-22 is a six-part limited series capturing the "adventures and misadventures" of a USA air squadron during World War II.

Catch-22 premieres on Hulu on May 17, 2019.

The six-part adaptation of Catch-22 tells the story of U.S. Air Force bomber John Yossarian (Christopher Abbott) as he becomes frustrated with his position and the fact that so many people are trying to kill him even though they don't know him and he doesn't know them. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid his military assignments, he'll be in violation of Catch-22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule 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 risky combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty.

The show's first trailer, which dropped on Monday at Hulu's Television Critics Association winter press tour, shows Abbott in action - as well as Chandler's Colonel Cathcart and Clooney's Scheisskopf.

Clooney directs two episodes of the series, while his Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov (The Men Who Stare At Goats) directs two and Ellen Kuras (Ozark) directs another two.

Catch-22 was previously adapted into a 1970 feature film starring Alan Arkin, Bob Balaban, Jack Gilford, Bob Newhart, Anthony Perkins, and Orson Welles.
