FX Network cancels Morgan Spurlock's '30 Days' reality series


By Christopher Rocchio, 11/10/2008 

FX Network has reportedly canceled the only original reality series it has aired in the last two years.

The network confirmed it has decided against renewing 30 Days for a fourth season, Broadcasting & Cable reported Friday.

While 30 Days represented FX's lone reality series, a spokesperson told Broadcasting & Cable that the network, which has significantly expanded its original scripted programming in recent years, is not planning on completely abandoning unscripted development.  

Except for 30 Days, the last reality series to air on FX was Black. White., which took a black family and a white family and used professional makeup to help create the experience of switching races.  It aired in Spring 2006.

30 Days premiered in June 2005 and was produced by Super Size Me creator Morgan Spurlock. 

Each episode of the series put different people in environments that challenged their beliefs, upbringing, religion or profession for 30 days -- much as Spurlock ate McDonald's food for every meal for 30 days to make Super Size Me.

30 Days' third season aired this summer.
