Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me 2 will debut on YouTube Red

Posted on

YouTube Red has acquired distribution rights to Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken, Morgan Spurlock’s well-received sequel to his 2004 fast-food industry exposé.

The new film finds Morgan reigniting his battle with the food industry 13 years after the release of his landmark documentary, this time opening his own fast food restaurant where he learns, among other things, how a chicken sandwich with grill lines (literally) painted on gets made. The film premiered earlier this month at the Toronto Film Festival, and was met with an enthusiastic response.

“”I’m ecstatic to be partnering with YouTube Red for the release of Super Size Me 2!” Spurlock said in a statement. “There’s no one better to help get this film in front of more people worldwide than these guys. They are going to blow this clucker up!”

“Morgan Spurlock has tackled so many thought-provoking topics over the years, and we’re thrilled to partner with him once again on this revealing documentary,” Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content for YouTube, added. “Morgan is skilled at sparking a global conversation on today’s most relevant issues, and Super Size Me 2 is yet another powerful film that will captivate viewers.”

Spurlock is currently working on his anticipated A&E project Cultureshock, an eight-part docuseries going behind the scenes of pop culture’s watershed moments. The series is produced in partnership with Entertainment Weekly and Spurlock’s Warrior Poets production studio.

Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken will be released theatrically in 2018 before making its exclusive global premiere on YouTube.
