MTV Will Air DJ AM's Addiction Documentary

10/5/2009 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MTV has decided they will air "Gone Too Far" -- the documentary series on young drug addicts that DJ AM finished just three days before he died from an accidental overdose.

The network says they got the "consent and support" of DJ AM's family before choosing to run the eight-episode series -- which features AM working with real-life drug addicts and their families to help them overcome substance abuse.

MTV released a statement from AM's family, saying:

"It is our hope through airing this show that people will get to see the side of Adam that we knew and loved, not just the celebrity DJ, but the honest and caring person who gave so much of himself to help others."


The series will premiere Monday, October 12.

What a dumb a$$...poor poor me I can`t kick,he wasn`t old junkie he was still young and dumb.ANYONE CAN KICK anything they dam well want to and I don`t feel sorry for DOA junkies.I seen them everywhere and the system builds them faster than they can die off.Send them over to 3world with no food or shoes and they them die like the rest of the world does without food or homes.I don`t have time for cry baby`s that say they can`t kick.

accidental overdose my ass. It was a "Overdose"
accidental death is something you have no control over.
He was taking cocaine and other drugs that's not a accidental he knows what he was doing. He was a dumbass end of story.

I'm glad they decided to air this series. The fact that he died three days after completion, shows for a fact, how serious drug addiction is and how important it is to manage it like a chronic disease.

It's funny Drugs to not discriminate, between race,creed,color,sex,rich or poor. It's a waste of how many people die each year,Over half of our prison population are filled with inmates from simple possession to full blown dealers, Here is something else for your already full plate Mr.Obama

....not just the celebrity DJ


Now that's funny. Maybe this "CELEBRITY" dj can hook up with that "MODEL" Jasmine.

The public is not stupid no matter what spin is put on these losers life.
