MTV TO AIR DJ AM'S REALITY SHOW
Released by Joyce Eng/TV Guide
DJ AM's intervention-reality show, Gone Too Far, will air, MTV announced.
The eight-hour series, in which Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein" tries to help young addicts on the path to sobriety, will premiere Oct. 12 at 10/9c with the support of the late celebrity DJ's family, the network said.
"Recovery can be extremely difficult and requires constant attention," said Sean Clarkin, executive vice president of the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. "But it's important to know that it is in fact possible to present examples of people who are recognizing the need for treatment and beginning that journey."
DJ AM, who was sober for more than 10 years before his death, died Aug. 28 at the age of 36 of an accidental overdose of cocaine and prescription drugs.
