  1. Throughout the 10-part web series The Confession, Kiefer Sutherland stars as a professional killer in an exploration of good vs. evil.

    In each of the 5-minute-to-9-minute episodes, only the wall of a confessional separates Sutherland’s character from a priest as he confesses his crimes and flashbacks reveal his journey to becoming a cold-blooded killer seeking redemption.

    “[The character] strongly believes the people he’s killed deserve it and right there is one of the greatest moral discussions of all time,” the former 24 star tells “He wants to believe there’s good out there and people can change because I think he wants to change.”

    After playing Jack Bauer for 8 seasons on 24, Sutherland knows a thing or two about morally complicated characters. But does the actor see any similarities between the characters? “They possess a lot of the similar skills,” Sutherland says. “[But] this is a bad guy.”

    Sutherland and executive producer Chris Young of Digital Broadcasting Group say The Confession rates with anything you’d see on another medium.

    “We really tried to make the highest-quality product we could so I would be proud to show this in a theater or on network TV. It’s as good as any film I’ve ever done,” Sutherland says. Mundy adds: “It was all about proving that A-list talent, A-list production quality and a script can originate online.”

    Even John Hurt, who plays the priest, hopped on board despite not having a clue about web series. “I thought, I don’t know what you’re talking about, [but] we all know that the world of entertainment is constantly changing and so therefore it seemed to make sense,” he says.
