Hulu and George Clooney are bringing Joseph Heller’s classic novel Catch-22 to television. The story of an Air Force pilot, Yossarion, who is stuck in a unique position when ordered to fly more and more missions – the idea being a pilot who’s willingly flying so many missions must be insane, but if he asks to be removed from duty, he has shown evidence of sanity, which makes him ineligible for being removed from duty.

Hulu is teaming with George Clooney, Paramount Television and Anonymous Content of the six-episode event series.

In a related deal, Hulu has acquired streaming rights to all fifteen seasons of ER.

The Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar Is a Demented Delight!

Hail, Caesar - Baird Whitlock

The Coen Brothers’ love of movies – especially, in this case, movies of the fifties – has never been in greater display than in Hail, Caesar.
