Catch-22 on channel 4

This comedy-drama series is set to follow Captain John Yossarian (Christopher Abbott, It Comes At Night) and an assemblage of army airmen during World War II. They are all striving to keep their sanity intact while fulfilling their roles to ensure a safe return home.

It's a classic and thematically rich novel and is sure to draw in audiences, but it's the cast which truly has all of our attention.

Catch-22 cast

Starring alongside Abbott, we have the likes of Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Graham Patrick Martin (Two and a Half Men), but most notably, the one-and-only George Clooney also appears.

The Hollywood star has amazed us across The Descendants, Burn After Reading, Ocean's Eleven and many more. Here, he plays Scheisskopf, a lieutenant who works his way up the ranks throughout. 

It's a stellar cast and we can't wait to see what the series has in store... when can we see it?
