Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (Inside Man, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Supersize Me) comes to Doc U! Known for his intimate portraits of subjects and deep examination of topics, Spurlock embraces cutting edge storytelling formats, including 3-D and web only broadcast, pushing the boundaries of what we expect from a documentary. Join KCRW's Matt Holzman (Matt's Movies, The Business) for a conversation with Spurlock, a look at the evolution of his storytelling form, and discussion of his latest project, Inside Man, with CNN Films, premiering Sunday, June 23 at 10:00PM.


Matt Holzman is the creator of The Business, KCRW's show about the business, and curator of Matt's Movies, the station's screening series for members. Read his blog at blogs.kcrw.com/mattsmovies. His favorite color is aubergine.


An acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Morgan Spurlock came to international prominence in 2004 with his Oscar® nominated film Super Size Me. He made his first foray into television as executive producer of the FX series 30 Days (2005-2008). Most recently, he has served as director of the upcoming 3-D concert film for the mega-hit band One Direction entitled One Direction: This is Us, executive producer of the documentary series A Day in the Life on Hulu, and the films, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, The Dotted Line on ESPN and Mansome on Yahoo.

Spurlock returns to television on June 23 with the CNN Original series Inside Man as host and producer. The one-hour weekly series will provide an intimate look into diverse sectors of American life and offer a deep-dive into pressing issues facing the U.S. that include migrant farm workers, the elder care industry, union workers, gun owners, education, bankruptcy and the drought.

Warrior Poets, the New York based production company founded in 2004 by Morgan Spurlock, has produced multiple award winning films and television programs. Films include The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Freakonomics, Where in the World is Osama bin Laden?, Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope, and Mansome. Television projects include the award winning FX series 30 Days, ESPN’s The Dotted Line, the Emmy and Writer’s Guild nominated The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3D on Ice!, Hulu’s A Day in the Life, Failure Club and Mansome on Yahoo!, & Morgan Spurlock’s New Britannia for Sky Atlantic HD.
