FX has closed a deal for a reality-series pilot placing an individual in a different living environment for one month, with the idea of examining societal differences in America ranging from the ethnic to the religious the to economic.

The pilot for 30 Days -- the first closed under new FX president of entertainment John Landgraf -- will be produced by Reveille (USA Network’s Nashville Star, NBC’s The Restaurant) and The Con, Morgan Spurlock’s company.

Spurlock -- who developed the concept and will have an on-air role in the pilot -- won the directing award in the documentary category at this year’s Sundance Film Festival for Super Size Me.

Some examples may include a Christian living as Muslim, a rich person experiencing the environs of poverty or a prosecuting attorney spending 30 days in jail.
