Showtime orders Morgan Spurlock's docu-series 'Seven Deadly Sins'

Showtime will take an in-depth look at the weird and darkly comic world of sin in the documentary series "Seven Deadly Sins," from Oscar-nominated executive producer Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me).

Hosted by Spurlock, this stylized documentary series will explore each of the seven deadly sins -- one per episode -- and will be told through Spurlock’s unique and extreme lens. "Seven Deadly Sins" will debut on Thursday, June 19 at 11 p.m. on Showtime.

"For years, I've wanted to do an Alfred Hitchcock Presents style show comprised completely of non-fiction stories,” said Spurlock. “A series just as dark and twisted as anything fiction could imagine, and now I'm thrilled to have that dream come true with 'Seven Deadly Sins.' With Showtime as a partner, we're going to make this as depraved as any scripted program as we dive head first into Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy & Pride. You won't believe it until you see it ... and even then, you may not believe it."
