‘Super Size Me’ director turns to TV

The man who made a hit movie out of eating McDonald’s fast food for a month has filmed a “fundamentalist Christian” man living as a Muslim to find out what it’s like to face the prejudice that many Muslims in America deal with since September 11.

The experiment is part of “Super Size Me” Director Morgan Spurlock’s new reality TV show “30 Days,” which places people in a variety of unfamiliar circumstances for 30 days.

“One of my favorite episodes is … what’s it like to be a Muslim in America … who is seen every day as a threat to our freedom simply because of their color, their race, their religion,” Spurlock told Reuters in an interview on Monday.
