Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winner George Clooney executive produces, directs and stars in Catch-22 – TVNZ OnDemand’s gripping new drama series.
Catch-22 follows the story of Captain John Yossarian (Christopher Abbott, Girls), a US air force soldier in World War II who can’t understand why thousands of people who’ve never met him want to kill him. Yossarian is a rebellious and fearful anti-hero, trying to survive the war against the odds.
Desperate to impress his superiors, Colonel Cathcart (Kyle Chandler, The Wolf of Wall Street) keeps raising the numbers of the missions his men must fly.
Meanwhile, Yossarian is driven half-mad by his will to live. He wants to complete his service and leave, but his efforts are blocked by Catch-22, a ridiculous bureaucratic rule which states that pilots don’t have to fly if they are certified insane. Unfortunately for the men, the same rule also states that being driven mad by fear is a rational emotion, which therefore means an individual is sane and able to carry on with the mission.
