The network describes "Inside Man" as a one-hour weekly series that will provide an intimate look into diverse sectors of American life and offer a deep-dive into pressing issues facing the U.S. that include migrant farm workers, the elder care industry, union workers, gun owners, education, bankruptcy and the drought. In the premiere episode, Spurlock will work in a medical marijuana dispensary in California. The host will be embedded in each week's story.

"Morgan, known for his inquisitiveness, humor and intimate portraits, is one of America's most distinctive voices in documentary filmmaking. By telling the story from the inside, he and his Warrior Poets team bring enlightened perspectives and added depth to the stories that impact American lives," Zucker said in a statement.
