Hugh Laurie Boards Hulu’s Catch-22


Hugh Laurie has been cast in Hulu’s six-part limited series Catch-22, from Paramount Television, Anonymous Content, George Clooney and Grant Heslov.

Laurie will play Major de Coverley, a squadron executive officer on Pianosa air base who dances to the beat of his own drum. He spends his time pitching horseshoes, listening to jazz on his phonograph, mixing himself martinis and hiring apartments for the officers in every new city the Americans take.

Catch-22 will be executive produced by Clooney and Heslov on behalf of Smokehouse Pictures, along with Richard Brown and Steve Golin on behalf of Anonymous Content. Luke Davies and David Michôd are co-writers and executive producers for the series. The show is based on Joseph Heller’s seminal novel of the same name.
