Thompson on Hollywood


Taking a leap into web entertainment, Kiefer Sutherland (24) is the creator and star of The Confession, an action web-series from Digital Broadcasting Group. Brad Mirman is directing, and John Hurt (V for Vendetta) co-stars. The ten-episode series will be distributed across DBG and on Hulu. The star caliber of The Confession is a huge milestone for the webisodic movement.

The web series “has taken everything I have learned over the last 25 years," says Sutherland, "from storytelling to acting, and challenged it in a way like no other experience that I’ve had. From five to seven minute episodes, to creating a character that I believe is edgy enough to stand out and make an impression in the vast Internet. In short, I’m having a blast.”

DBG CEO Chris Young is excited to have A-listers who can "finally capture and crystallize the seismic shift in how content of this caliber is released, distributed and enjoyed by an audience that will rival that of a hit television series.”

The series premieres in March.
 Here's the Facebook page teaser trailer. And here's what TOH learned at a web entertainment panel.
