New York’s Morgan Spurlock, the indie doc film director who gave us Super Size Me and the upcoming Sundance entry Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden?, has just signed a deal with Fox to develop both “scripted and nonscripted” fare with Fox, according to Variety.
Series “30 Days,” which is hosted by Spurlock, follows people as they assume different roles in society for a month in order to get a new perspective on how others live. Show comes from Reveille and Actual Reality.
Spurlock says “30 Days” reps the kind of thing he now plans to do at Fox TV Studios, where he hopes “to create the kind of unabashed programming that will move audiences and make them think.”
“As a filmmaker and producer, it’s so important to me to maintain my own voice and work in an environment that encourages creative freedom and exploration of new ideas,” Spurlock said.
His “Super Size Me” is the No. 8 highest-grossing doc of all time and was nominated for an Academy Award.
