Confess
first premiered in Israel in 2016, and is available to the public at confesstlv.com Each of its eight episodes are about 10 minutes long, and focus on "secret sexual encounters." According to the show, every scene is "based on the confessions of sex-dating app users who have shared their experiences with the show’s creators."

Moshe Rosenthal created, directed and wrote Confess, which was produced by Conch Studios and supported by Mifal Hapais.

In a statement to Israeli reporters on Thursday, Rosenthal said he is "excited to be the first Israeli web series that is taking this huge step toward American television."

The Israeli series stars some relatively unknown actors, as well as some familiar faces, like Noa Koler (The Wedding Plan), Ori Laizerovich (Shababnikim) and Maor Schwitzer.

According to Variety, Delpy – who is best known for starring in the trilogy Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight – will write and executive produce the US version, alongside Israeli creators Rosenthal and Jake Witzenfeld.
