FX Orders Six-Pack of 30 Days


FX has ordered six episodes of new docu-reality show 30 Days.

Slated for a summer-2005 debut, the show -- produced by filmmaker Morgan Spurlock and Ben Silverman’s Reveille Productions and related to Spurlock’s documentary, Super Size Me -- will follow individuals placed in situations unlike their everyday lives over a 30-day period. Spurlock will host and narrate the installments.

FX executives said the show will thrust the subjects into situations where they will experience religious, economic and ethnic differences.

In the pilot, a Christian insurance salesman from West Virginia will live with a Muslim family in Dearborn, Mich., home of the nation’s largest Islamic community.
