Morgan Spurlock on the ‘Connected’ generation

Best known for documentary films “Super Size Me” and “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold,” Morgan Spurlock teamed up with AOL to produce the reality Web series “Connected,” which debuted on Tuesday. The stars of “Connected” filmed their own lives for six months, handing that footage over to Spurlock and AOL to edit into cohesive storylines. "What the show represents is that there are things that connect all of us, whether that’s the struggles at work or at home, or hard times in the relationships, or trying to find love," said Spurlock. "All of those ideas transcend culture and country."
