On a fairly regular basis, as we're sure you're aware, the world is threatened with complete and total destruction - or, at the very least, something unpleasant. That's where the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) comes in. Master spy John Archer, his mom, ex-girlfriend, butler, secretary, and comptroller are all there to help fight the good fight. Along the way, as we understand it, they also fight each other... a lot. That's right, they use global crises to settle small, petty, scores. That makes them our kind of people and this might just be our kind of comedy.
