'Super Size Me' Morgan Spurlock Joins CNN

'Super Size Me' Morgan Spurlock Joins CNN

Spurlock will be producing and hosting a CNN series called 'Inside Man'

Looks like Anthony Bourdain might have some competition in CNN waters. Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is joining the CNN cast, hosting a new original series called Inside Man.

The premise: "Each week Spurlock will provide an insider’s view into rarely-seen sectors of American life that include gun lovers, marijuana growers, migrant farm workers, and end-of-life caregivers," the press release says.

Word is the show will air April 2013, around the same time as Bourdain's new show. A CNN representative tells us that topics listed above are are the ones agreed on, but new topics (including potentially food-related and fast food-related ones) are up for discussion.

Of course, it wouldn't be surprising if Spurlock did do some more food-related segments; he most recently produced Hulu's A Day in the Life series, which notably featured Mario Batali.

“Morgan Spurlock’s name has become synonymous with creative and thought-provoking documentary story-telling,” Mark Whitaker, CNN Worldwide executive vice president said in a statement. “Like Anthony Bourdain’s new CNN series, Inside Man will carry the distinctive stamp of its host while taking viewers on colorful and informative journeys into fascinating corners of American society.”


Morgan Spurlock's 'Super Size Me' Sequel Will Premiere This Fall

'Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!' subs in 'Big Chicken' for Big Macs.

Morgan Spurlock, the director of the 2004 hit documentary Super Size Me, will release a sequel this fall and this time, he&aposs battling the fast food industry from the inside.

Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! will focus on the four-day fried chicken pop-up that Spurlock opened in a former Wendy&aposs in Columbus, OH last fall. Holy Chicken offered a limited menu of sandwiches, chicken tenders and salads, all sourced from local free-range farms.

While Spurlock&aposs chicken received pretty decent reviews, Holy Chicken was never destined to become an actual restaurant and instead existed more as guerilla commentary on the state of the fast food industry in 2016. For instance, it was reported that take home containers of Holy Chicken&aposs tenders proclaimed of the chicken that, “we never, ever called it fried, even though it is." Additionally, Holy Chicken&aposs brown to-go bags stated that “studies have shown that these simple bags make customers more likely to believe that fast food is healthy, artisanal, and good for the environment — even though it’s none of those things.” Spurlock did speak of his desire to take his pop-up on a tour across the country, however, there have been no updates regarding the director bringing Holy Chicken back of late.

Nearly a year after launching Holy Chicken, Spurlock&aposs new documentary will presumably investigate how chains that partner with the 𠇋ig chicken” industry operate and the challenges that Spurlock faced when he opened a short-lived, ethically-minded fast food restaurant. Spurlock previously told Eater that with the new project, “I think we have the ability to change the way fast food functions and change the way people look at it as a result.”

Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which starts September 7th. If you&aposre in desperate need of a good food documentary in the meantime, check out some of our recent recommendations here.
