AMC has released photos and teaser clips for its new TV series Dietland, based on Sarai Walker's novel. A two-hour premiere airs June 4 at 9 p.m. The series stars Joy Nash and Julianna Margulies.
Christopher Abbott (Girls, The Sinner) will play the lead role (Capt. John Yossarian) in the adaptation of Joseph Heller's classic novel Catch-22, Variety reported. The six-part limited Hulu series co-stars George Clooney (Col. Cathcart), who is also serving as executive producer and co-director. Clooney's Smokehouse Pictures producing partner, Grant Heslov, will direct a portion of the series in addition to executive producing.
All six episodes were co-written by Luke Davies and David Michôd. The series will be produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content. Deadline noted that the series "will mark Clooney's first regular television role since he broke out on the medical drama E.R. in the early 1990s."
