Plot Synopsis

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock goes inside diverse sectors of American life to reveal the facts behind the country's hard-hitting issues. In the premiere episode, Spurlock worked at the largest marijuana dispensary in the United States, presenting an inside look at the medical marijuana industry through the lens of California's Harborside Health Center. In later episodes, Spurlock investigates migrant farm workers, the elder care industry, union workers, gun owners, education, bankruptcy and the drought. INSIDE MAN returned for its eight-episode second season on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 10pm ET on CNN, as Morgan became a paparazzo to explore obsession with celebrities -- from chases to hunting down the great photo. In subsequent episodes, he investigated: the brave new world of extreme life extension; America's cultural obsession with pets; the scary truth about big data collecting; religion by visiting evangelical mega-churches, Baptist gospel churches, mosques, Mormon gatherings, and more; UFO sightings, embedding himself at several MUFONs (Mutual UFO Network); income inequality; and college athletics. On Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 9pm ET, CNN aired the Season 3 premiere of INSIDE MAN, as Spurlock takes an inside look at the mystery of robots and artificial intelligence in the season opener. In subsequent episodes of the third season, Spurlock investigates: the burgeoning business of overseas travel for medical treatment; America's zoos -- from both sides of the glass -- to get an insiders perspective on the future of these attractions; how people find love in the 21st century by trying his hand as a matchmaker; whether the world is ready for a new kind of money by living off of nothing but the e-currency Bitcoin for a week; the waste management industry, from the ins-and-outs of garbage collection with the New York City Department of Sanitation; the mysterious disappearance of the honey bees by becoming a commercial beekeeper in order to explore the causes and devastating effects on our entire food system; and the viability of America's national parks in the 21st Century by becoming a volunteer park ranger in Alaska.
Season 4 of INSIDE MAN premiered on Friday, June 3, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on CNN, as Morgan tackles toxins, gambling, the space industry, disruptors, gaming, and crime scene investigations. In the season opener, "Double or Nothing," Spurlock enters the seductive world of professional gambling by spending a week in Las Vegas determined to beat the house. His exploration of this pastime, which often leads to serious addiction, takes him to casinos, bookies, the racetrack, Off Track Betting and just about any place that allows him to gamble.
