Kiefer Sutherland stars alongside Charles Dance in new conspiracy thriller Rabbit Hole, coming to Paramount+ in the UK this March

Rabbit Hole, a new conspiracy thriller starring Kiefer Sutherland, is coming to Paramount+ in the UK this March. The first episode is also set to air on Channel 5 on Thursday 13 April as part of their Paramount+ Presents strand.

The series, which also stars Game of Thrones’ Charles Dance and Succession’s Rob Yang, follows corporate spy John Weir after he’s accused of a murder he didn’t commit. When Weir fights back against the mysterious forces that framed him, he’s drawn into a mystery far grander and more dangerous than ever.

It marks Sutherland’s second show with Paramount+, following historical drama The First Lady, and his first new thriller since the conclusion of Designated Survivor in 2019. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Rabbit Hole ahead of its release this March.

What is it about?

The official synopsis for Rabbit Hole reveals that “John Weir is a corporate spy adept at deception," and goes on to explain that "when a mysterious world-controlling power frames him for murder, Weir goes against this power - and soon finds himself fighting for democracy itself.”

Kiefer Sutherland plays John Weir, a corporate spy framed for murder. Sutherland of course is best known for playing Jack Bauer in 24, but you might also recognise him from the political thriller Designated Survivor, or from films like Flatliners (1990) and Flatliners (2017).

Charles Dance plays Dr Ben Wilson, an uneasy ally to Weir. In recent years, Dance received particular acclaim for playing the villainous Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones, in turn earning him other villain roles in series like The Sandman and The Crown

Who writes and directs?

Rabbit Hole was created by frequent collaborators John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, who both write and direct the opening episode of the series. Requa and Ficarra have previously written and/or directed episodes of WeCrashed, Patriot Act, and The Wild Thornberrys, and together directed the films Focus and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
