    Surveillance
    Premieres Wednesday, June 24th at 8:15pm, followed by encore presentations at 10:00pm and 11:45pm


    Starring Julia Ormond, Bill Pullman, Pell James. Written by Jennifer Lynch and Kent Harper. Executive Produced by David Lynch. Directed by Jennifer Lynch.

    When Federal Officers Elizabeth Anderson (Julia Ormond) and Sam Hallaway (Bill Pullman) arrive at Captain Billing’s office, they have three sets of stories to figure out and a string of vicious murders to consider.

    One zealot cop, a strung out junkie and an eight year old girl all sit in testimony to the roadside rampage, but as the Feds begin to expose the fragile little details each witness conceals so carefully with a well practiced lie, they soon discover that uncovering ‘the truth’ can come at a very big cost…

    I used to really love this channel. I don't know if it is because the HD selection is so vast now, even if some is stretch-o-vision, but I had to cancel my $5/month extended HD package for lack of programmin.

    The original Shall We Dance is so far superior to that piece of cr@p with J-Lo and Richard Gere. Even if it wasn't the unrated version it is such a wonderful little movie. I can't wait.
