Spurlock vowed to make the documentary series “as depraved as any scripted program.”

“For years, I’ve wanted to do an Alfred Hitchcock Presents style show comprised completely of non-fiction stories,” Spurlock said of the upcoming show. “A series just as dark and twisted as anything fiction could imagine, and now I’m thrilled to have that dream come true with ‘Seven Deadly Sins.’  With Showtime as a partner, we’re going to make this as depraved as any scripted program as we dive head first into Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy & Pride. You won’t believe it until you see it … and even then, you may not believe it.”
