FX Picks Up Another 30 Days

spurlock.jpgThis is one super-sized order that won't make documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock sick. The Hollywood Reporter says that FX has picked up his reality series "30 Days" for a second season.

Each hour-long episode subjects willing participants to their own super-sized hell. Spurlock executive produces the show and serves as its host. The "Super Size Me" director and his vegan-chef fiancee even participated in the pilot episode, where they were left to fend for themselves on minimum wage in the ghetto of Columbus, Ohio. Other episodes followed a binge-drinking mom trying to keep up with her college kid's lifestyle, a Christian learning the ways of Muslim life, and two friends dumping the comforts of home and getting back to nature by living in an "eco village."

The show averaged about 1.4 million people over its six-week run, making it a good haul for FX. If you haven't taken a peek, you can jump in at any point. Don't expect "Super Size Me" 2, but it's actually a very interesting premise that's well executed. Now that FX has decided to pick up the show, maybe they will rerun the six-episode first season.

The number of episodes and premiere date for the second season of "30 Days" has not been announced. -- Rachel Cericola
