Spurlock was the executive producer and star of the reality television series 30 Days.

Biography

Il a créé, présenté et coproduit l'émission de télé-réalité 30 Days, diffusée aux États-Unis sur la chaîne FX Network et basée sur le concept de son film : vivre une expérience de vie pendant 30 jours (par exemple un chrétien pratiquant part vivre dans une famille musulmane en ayant l'obligation de suivre leur culture). Il a également animé l'émission I Bet You Will sur MTV.

Après Super Size Me, il a sillonné les États-Unis afin de sensibiliser les personnes aux conséquences de la malbouffe. Son film suivant est sous la forme d'un documentaire à la recherche d'Oussama ben Laden dans un même mélange d'humour et de sérieux où l'auteur ne va pas hésiter à s'exposer sur un terrain hostile.

Il réalisera l'émission spéciale visant à souligner le 20e anniversaire de la comédie d'animation The Simpsons. Celle-ci s'intitule The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3-D on Ice et diffusée le jeudi 14 janvier 2010 sur les ondes de la Fox. Le cinéaste se penche alors sur le phénomène culturel des Simpson. Il y traite de la perception du public à l'égard de cette célèbre famille et de la vision du monde par ses équipes de création.

In Fat Head, Tom Naughton questions the claims and ideas expressed by Morgan Spurlock in the film Super Size Me, in which Spurlock exclusively ate McDonald's food for 30 days. Naughton, who examines the nutritional information in McDonald's menu, is skeptical of Spurlock's doctor's statement that Spurlock was consuming 5,000 calories a day, and is unable to obtain Spurlock's food log from Spurlock's representatives. (Naughton's website includes a page that lists every item he ate during his month-long experiment, including the nutritional information of his diet.) Naughton also criticizes his inference from Super Size Me that consumers are unaware that fast food is high in calories, and argues that no one is forced to eat fast food, as fast food restaurants merely cater to consumer demand, and that if fast food restaurants did not exist, people would satisfy that demand by eating the same food at other restaurants or at home. Naughton also questions Spurlock's claim that his 30-day diet resulted in signs of addiction, in light of the fact that Spurlock apparently had no difficulty in ceasing eating fast food at the end of his experiment.

After some comical animations involving Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, the film shows Spurlock visiting various countries associated with or affected by Bin Laden. The film contains short interviews with many people about Bin Laden and Islamic fundamentalism, and about the US and its war on terror. Supposedly Spurlock searches for Bin Laden, and he even asks people at random in the street where he is. The film is intercut with images of Spurlock's wife in the late stages of her pregnancy. Much of Spurlock's commentary is based on the concerns of a new father.
