As part of its ongoing efforts to get more people watching on weekends, CNN has announced that "Super Size Me" director Morgan Spurlock will be getting his own series, starting in April 2013.
Spurlock's show, "Inside Man," will take the adventurous documentarian inside such subcultures as gun lovers, marijuana growers, migrant farm workers and end-of-life caregivers.
"Inside Man" will be paired with globe-trotting chef Anthony Bourdain's untitled new show in an effort to use their celebrity to combat the news network's ratings woes. CNN recently hit its lowest viewership in 20 years.
In a statement, Mark Whitaker, CNN Worldwide executive vice president and managing editor said, "Morgan Spurlock’s name has become synonymous with creative and thought-provoking documentary story-telling. 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."
