Having just finished watching the entire series of 24 (thank you Netflix), I was just about to start going through withdrawal until I heard about the The Confession. OurStage.com has partnered with Digital Broadcasting Group, the producers behind the new series, to look for the next generation of musical stars through a song competition.
The winner will have their music featured in the new series, which is now available on Hulu.com (as of March 28). Had I known a tad bit sooner about the competition, I would’ve shared info about voting. However, voting officially ends today, March 31. Winners will be announced “on or about” April 15. You can hear entries at: http://www.ourstage.com/contests/4871
Sutherland called his work on The Confession, “the most exciting and rewarding experiences” of his entire career. That’s tad hard to believe considering how huge and awesome 24 is, but I’ll take that is trying to garner good publicity.
Here the info about the show:
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), along with co-stars Max Casella (HBO‘s The Sopranos) and Michael Badalucco (ABC’s The Practice). 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.
