CNN continued its reality series push Thursday, signing documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock to host a new CNN original series that looks at rarely seen sectors of American life.
The series, Inside Man, will debut in April 2013 and air alongside the previously announced new series hosted by former Travel Channel personality Anthony Bourdain, according to network officials. The series will feature Spurlock as he profiles such groups as gun lovers, marijuana growers, migrant farm workers, and end-of-life caregivers.
"Morgan Spurlock's name has become synonymous with creative and thought-provoking documentary story-telling," said Mark Whitaker, CNN Worldwide executive vice president and managing editor 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."
