Morgan Spurlock, who has been seeing diminishing returns on his documentary efforts following his work on Super-Size Me, has been picked up by Showtime to host a seven-part series on non-fictional accounts of the seven deadly sins, entitled (straightens tie) Seven Deadly Sins.

Why is this going to be on Showtime instead of the channel of the man with the enormous scrotum? I don't know. But it's getting a significant profile boost. Is this what Spurlock needs after doing docs on manscaping and sponsorships that fell very very flat?

Maybe, but this show doesn't sound particularly unique or interesting. Eh, maybe Christopher Walken will appear and spice things up.
