DESCRIPTION: (from Spike TV's press release) "S.I.S.," the original HD movie about a covert unit of the L.A.P.D., from executive producer John Herzfeld ("15 Minutes," "Two Days in the Valley"), who also wrote and directed the film, will premiere on Spike TV on Sunday, August 24 (10:00 PM - Midnight, ET/PT). The film stars Matt Nable, Peter Stebbings, Omari Hardwick, Colleen Porch and Keith David. "S.I.S." centers on a cop who has fallen on hard times and is recruited to work with the Special Investigative Section (S.I.S.), an elite, covert branch of the L.A.P.D. that tracks the most dangerous, habitual offenders and attempts to catch them in the act of committing violent crimes. Up until now, their unheralded work has been shrouded in secrecy but their controversial methods begin to face closer scrutiny from police brass.
