    War Is Hell In The First Trailer For Catch-22
    The Television Critics Association winter press tour is happening in the States right now, which means that the news radar is pinging with a lot of TV shows being announced or promoted. Falling into the latter category is Hulu miniseries Catch-22, which has George Clooney as a driving force, co-writing, producing and directing. Check out the first trailer...

    Joseph Heller's 1961 novel has hit the screen before, via Mike Nichols' 1970 film, but the miniseries format means it can be explored even further The story focuses on Captain Yossarian (Christopher Abbott), a US Air Force bombardier who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy; it is his own army, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid the perilous missions he’s assigned, he’ll be in violation of Catch-22, a 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 dangerous 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 cast for this one also includes Kyle Chandler, Hugh Laurie, Julie Ann Emery, Giancarlo Giannini and more. All six episodes will debut on Hulu across the pond on 17 May, with Channel 4 winning the rights to show it in the UK.
