Airdate: 7 Deadly Sins
Presto's doco series looks in-depth at each of the seven deadly sins with Morgan Spurlock's twisted style.
New documentary series 7 Deadly Sins from filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) is now streaming on Presto.
The series looks in-depth at each of the seven deadly sins with Spurlock’s twisted style.
“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 7 Deadly Sins. You won’t believe it until you see it … and even then, you may not believe it.”
Dark, twisted and wildly entertaining, 7 Deadly Sins proves that truth really is stranger than fiction. Spurlock presents an outrageous, modern day interpretation of the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. Each episode presents a story around one of the sins that is so extreme you won’t believe it’s non-fiction. It’s humanity like you’ve never seen it, and you won’t be able to look away.
