Grant Heslov on Making Hulu's 'Catch-22' With George Clooney

Joseph Heller’s “Catch-22” has a troubled Hollywood history. Mike Nichols’ 1970 feature film adaptation was a widely panned flop.

The streaming network announced a May 17 release date at the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday — prime Emmy position for the Oscar-winning pedigree behind the miniseries. Not only does the Clooney direct and executive produce the series — his first-ever for a streaming service — with partner Grant Heslov (“Argo,” “Goo... more Comments
