MTV to proceed with DJ AM reality show


MTV has decided to air DJ AM’s reality show “Gone Too Far,” which wrapped production shortly before his tragic death in August. The eight-episode series will follow DJ AM as he aids drug addicts on their path to sobriety.

DJ AM knew all too well about the daily struggle of drug addiction. The late celebrity spinner (born Adam Goldstein), who died of an accidental drug overdose in August at age 36, spent his last few months filming an MTV series called “Gone Too Far,” in which he spoke candidly about his own addiction, his 11 years of sobriety and his desire to help other young addicts overcome their demons.

Now, with the consent and support of AM’s family, MTV will begin airing the eight-episode documentary series on Monday, October 12. The one-hour show will air at 10 p.m. ET/PT and chronicle the lives of young addicts, ages 20-25, who are offered a chance at recovery.

DJ AM was killed by what police are calling an “accidental overdose.” It’s strange to think that just under a year ago he and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker survived a plane crash that killed four people. Unfortunately, DJ AM was unable to escape death twice.
