Executive-producers include Kiefer Sutherland, Chris Young and Joseph Gomes of DBG and Maura Mandt of Maggie Vision. The Confession is an episodic series consisting of ten (10) episodes and will be seen on Hulu.com, as well as distributed across DBG.
The project marks Kiefer Sutherland's first endeavor in web development and represents a groundbreaking new level of talent, production and gripping storytelling in the field of original webisodic content.
"This experience that is The Confession has taken everything I have learned over the last 25 years from storytelling to acting and challenged it in a way like no other experience that I've had," said Sutherland. "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."
"The Confession sets a precedent for what is possible in original webisodic content," said Chris Young, CEO of DBG. "Never before has something of this magnitude and motion picture quality come to the third screen. I'm thrilled to be working with such A-list talent to 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."
