George Clooney's TV comeback lands at Hulu

George Clooney's TV comeback lands at Hulu”

George Clooney's anticipated return to TV will be a streaming experience.

The actor will star in and direct a six-episode, limited-series for Hulu, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

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

The series landed at the streaming service following a bidding war that ensued when Paramount TV and Anonymous Content's development of the project was announced late a year ago. Clooney will also be co-directing with long-time creative partner Grant Heslov.

Catch-22, considered one of the most influential books of the 20th century, follows the exploits of Captain John Yossarian, a U.S. Army Air Forse B-25 bombardier, and his fellow airmen as they struggle to maintain their sanity amidst the extreme wartime circumstances. Richard Brown and Steve Olin will executive produce on behalf of Anonymous Content. Filming is slated to begin early 2018.

Catch-22 is set in Italy during World War II, a time period that Clooney has explored before in his film Monuments Men and in Steven Soderbergh's The Good German.

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.
