  • George Clooney Is Returning to TV for the First Time Since ‘ER’ and Oh How Weve Missed Him

Previously made into a feature film by Mike Nichols (The Graduate) - where Alan Arkin played the lead, Col. John Yossarian - the six-episode series is being produced for the Paramount Network by Anonymous Content, and has now signed George Clooney to co-star as Colonel Cathcart.

Clooney's move to television comes as Oscar-winning stars such as Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas also take on small-screen projects.

He says he told Sini to come with him, and she voluntarily went to dinner with him, knowing Sherin would be left alone. According to police documents, he said she started choking, "coughing and her breathing slowed".

Co-written by Luke Davies and David Michôd, who also will executive produce, the adaptation is set in Italy during World War II.

Clooney will be directing and starring in a miniseries adaptation of Catch-22 from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content.

Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the USA draft resolution was not balanced. It was later re-submitted but failed to garner nine "yes" votes.

Catch-22 tells the story of Yossarian, an U.S. bomber pilot in World War II. Clooney and Grant Heslov, who serve as executive producer, will direct the limited series. He is in a tough situation because he hates embarking on unsafe combat missions but can't be relieved from duty because of the frustrating Catch-22 rule.

George's role as the malicious Colonel Cathcart marks his first acting job since his appearance as a slick TV presenter held hostage in 2016's "Money Monster".

The 56-year-old actor broke out on television series such as The Facts Of Life, Roseanne and was part of the original cast of medical drama ER, playing Dr Doug Ross until 1999. That's the catch-22.
