Spike TV has completed the cast for a movie/back-door pilot called "S.I.S.," tapping veteran actor Keith David to star.
David will play an assistant chief in the Los Angeles Police Department who heads a secret unit -- the Special Investigation Squad, hence the title -- that investigates major crimes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The two-hour movie could also serve as the pilot for a series if it's well-received; a premiere date hasn't been scheduled.
The cast also include Omari Hardwick ("The Guardian," "Saved"), Colleen Porch ("Transformers"), Matt Nable and Peter Stebbings ("Jeremiah").
John Herzfeld ("2 Days in the Valley," "15 Minutes") wrote the pilot and will direct as well. He also serves as an executive producer with Neal Moritz ("Prison Break," "I Am Legend") and Vivian Cannon.
