Catch-22 Ready for Launch on HBO GO in Asia


The limited series Catch-22, executive produced by and starring George Clooney, arrives with all six episodes on HBO GO in Asia on May 18.

The series will subsequently premiere on HBO in Asia on June 4 at 9:15 p.m. In the U.S., Catch-22 is a Hulu original.

Based on Joseph Heller’s seminal novel of the same name, Catch-22 follows the adventures and misadventures of a U.S. air squadron in Italy in World War II. Yossarian, a bombardier, whose frantic obsession every time he goes up on a mission is “to come down alive,” is the series’ main character.

In addition to Clooney (Up in the Air, The Ides of March), the cast includes Christopher Abbott (Girls, The Sinner), Grant Heslov (Argo), Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Bloodline), Hugh Laurie (The Night Manager, House) and Giancarlo Giannini (Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale).
