George Clooney Will Star in and Direct 'Catch 22' Series

George Clooney, who has focused on making films for the past two decades, has signed on to star in and direct a TV miniseries based on Joseph Heller's novel "Catch-22".

Clooney previously starred on the small screen in Roseanne and The Facts of Life, but he made his breakthrough as the much-loved Dr Doug Ross in the medical drama ER.

Clooney will direct and star in the six-episode series, based on U.S. author Joseph Heller's darkly comedic 1961 novel "Catch-22". Clooney exited the show in 1999, and Catch-22 is his first major television project since.

Assuming PowerPass is relaunched in a functional manner sometime in 2018, this is still not the outcome GameStop wanted right now. Stores that had the program already have been told to remove all advertising for the program and to hault the service.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Catch-22 will be written by Luke Davies (Lion) and David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) and will run for six episodes.

TVGuide.com said Clooney will play the role of Colonel Cathcart. On the big-screen, Clooney's work includes an Oscar win for his supporting turn in Syriana and as part of the cast of best picture victor Argo.

Clooney will direct, along with Grant Heslov. The company is also behind Netflix's 13 Reasons Why and upcoming Emma Stone and Jonah Hill starrer Maniac from director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) and TNT's forthcoming The Alienist. It focuses on Yossarian, an Air Force bombardier who's furious due to the bureaucratic rule known as Catch-22, 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. The actor will also take part in the production of the series.
