NFL Films & KISS connect for new short film

Chris Weaver, NFL Films Presents

You wanted the best, and you got the best! The NFL Films tradition of covering rock ‘n roll continues, this time with KISS! We’ve shot the masked quartet during their Super Bowl XXXIII performance, and again when Gene Simmons sang the National Anthem at the 2013 NFL International Series game between the Vikings and Steelers in London. But this fall we’ll present our first short film exclusively on the band.

The forthcoming feature will be part of the NFL Films Presents series, which comes to Fox Sports 1 this football season. In this film you’ll see KISS on and off stage during their 40th anniversary tour, and get an inside look at how “the hottest band in the world” brought professional football back to Los Angeles through their ownership of the expansion LA KISS Arena Football League team.  Tune in to see the fire and fury of the LA KISS in their inaugural season of action, as captured in classic NFL Films style.

NFL Films Presents: LA KISS will be produced by Tom Brant and directed by Chris Weaver. Follow @NFLFilms and @WeaverNFLF on Twitter for updates, including air-dates and times, and exclusive photos and content.
