Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock‘s already had quite a busy 2011. January saw the premiere of his product placement documentary The Greatest Movie Ever Sold at Sundance; this summer brought the release of his Hulu series A Day in the Life; and this month marked the debut of Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan’s Hope at TIFF. In addition, he’s recently signed on to direct his first non-documentary feature, which Spurlock describes as “very Erin Brockovich-ish.” Most people would probably consider taking the rest of the year off at this point, but the tireless Spurlock isn’t most people. He’s now gearing up for his next project, The Failure Club.

The Yahoo! reality series will follow seven New Yorkers with big dreams and bigger worries as they attempt to get over their fear of failure and aim for their loftiest goals. And if you happen to be a NYC resident who counts “starring in a Morgan Spurlock documentary” among his or her list of to-dos, you may be in luck: Spurlock’s team is currently seeking “inspiring and genuine every-day people” to appear in the series.
