It’s a Clooney-palooza at Hulu. George Clooney marks his big return to television on the streaming service via “Catch-22,” a six-part limited series that goes into production this year.
Clooney will executive produce and also star as Colonel Cathcart. He’ll also direct the series alongside his Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov.
But more immediately, effective this morning, Hulu is streaming all 331 episodes of “ER” thanks to a new deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. With all 15 seasons now online, this is the first time the show’s entire library has been available on a streaming video on demand service.
Since it debuted, ER was one of the most-nominated TV dramas in Emmy history and also one of the most-watched series during its run. The iconic series helped launch the careers of stars such as George Clooney, Noah Wyle, Maura Tierney, Anthony Edwards, Ming-Na, Laura Innes, Eriq La Salle and Julianna Margulies, among others.
“It was such an honor to be a part of this show. I was lucky to have worked with so many writers, actors and directors all at the top of their game. Most importantly I’ve made friends for a lifetime. I’m excited it will finally be streaming on Hulu,” Clooney said in a statement.
