The 56-year-old George Clooney – a two-time Oscar winner – will receive about $ 1 million per episode of the new series “Catch-22”, according to the president of Paramount Television studio
American actor and director George Clooney will produce, co-direct and act in the new series “Catch-22,” the star’s first regular television role “ER” nearly two decades ago. The limited series will be just six long episodes, said Amy Powell, president of Paramount Television – the studio producing the show along with Anonymous Content – in an interview with Hollywood Reporter.
HUM is under way, a source close to the AFP, confirming several US media reports. The show is an adaptation of Joseph Heller’s 1961 novel of the same name, which centers on a squadron of World War II facing a no-win situation to return home. The 56-year-old Clooney – a two-time Oscar winner – will receive about $ 1 million per episode, according to Powell. It will be the actor’s first recurring role on television in the primetime medical drama show “ER,” which brought him to celebrity in the nineties. Clooney played the doctor Doug Ross before leaving the show in 1999 to embark on his successful film career. He made a few cameo appearances later on, notably in 2009 for the fifteenth and final season.
