"This is the first thing in my entire career that I've been involved in from the inception of the idea to the delivery of the product," Sutherland says in a behind-the-scenes look at the series. "My interest stemmed from the challenge of trying to tell a five-minute story over a long period of time, and clearly the Internet is the largest network on the planet. ... The potential for this landscape is massive."
The Confession, composed of 10 five-to-seven-minute webisodes, follows a hit man (Sutherland) who discusses why his victims deserved to die with a priest (John Hurt). "[Each episode] will deal with kind of a more of an intellectual, theological discussion about God and then cut back to a murder or a crime he had committed," Sutherland explains.The series was shot over nine days in New York in January and also stars Michael Badalucco and Max Casella. It will premiere on Hulu this month.See what else Sutherland, the cast and crew have to say about The Confession:
