'DURRELLS' SEASON 3 RETURNS NEXT SUNDAY WITH KEELEY HAWES, JOSH O'CONNOR! BBC HIRES TOM HOOPER, DAFNE KEEN FOR 'HIS DARK MATERIALS' EPIC ADAPTATION! CHRISTOPHER ABBOTT TO LEAD GEORGE CLOONEY'S WW2 SERIES 'CATCH 22'

CHRISTOPHER ABBOTT 
TO LEAD GEORGE CLOONEY'S WW2 MINI SERIES 'CATCH 22'
We're sticking to period set TV series today, starting with an announcement that Christopher Abbott has been cast as the lead in George Clooney's
Yes, Christopher does look like Kit Harington's prettier twin
mini series CATCH 22. Set in WW2 Italy it follows artful dodger Yossarian (Abbott), a US bombardier, who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy, but rather his own army which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid his military assignments, he’ll be in violation of CATCH 22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule which specifies that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers which are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind; a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty. Clooney will direct and play a colonel.
