NEW YORK — Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is coming to CNN for a new weekend series that will take a close look at areas of American life that don’t normally get much attention.

The series “Inside Man” will look at gun lovers, marijuana growers, end of life caregivers and migrant farmworkers in its early episodes. Spurlock is best known for his Oscar-nominated film “Super Size Me,” where he subsisted on only McDonald’s food for 30 days.

The show is expected to debut in April, paired with another new series from chef Anthony Bourdain.

Both series are from outside production companies and represent an experiment for CNN, which has had ratings troubles in recent years.
