Kiefer Sutherland in “The Confession”

Kiefer Sutherland in The Confession

This is a hub page for coverage on Kiefer Sutherland’s internet series The Confession. Ten episodes were produced, each running between five and ten minutes. 24 composer Sean Callery scored the music.

The Confession Plot Synopsis

Created by and starring Kiefer Sutherland, The Confession is a story of unique redemption and an exploration of good and evil featuring a hit man (Kiefer Sutherland), and a priest (John Hurt). The story begins on Christmas Eve, when the hit-man enters a church to confess his sins to the priest. Through a series of gripping flashbacks, the Confessor’s journey is revealed – laying out what has brought him to this moment and leading the audience to the dramatic ending where the man’s chances at ultimate redemption hang in the balance. While at first the Confessor seems to be an evil, cold-blooded killing machine and the Priest the ultimate arbiter of good, as the series develops it becomes clear that both characters are much more complicated than either could have suspected.

List of The Confession Episodes

The first three episodes of the series premiered on March 28th at 5 AM on Hulu (US only). It’s planned to be released worldwide at a later date though no release dates have been announced.
