The reality show is full of tears from both the addicts that the late DJ AM was helping and people close to them.
The trailer of DJ AM's "Gone Too Far" finally gets to see the light. MTV has shared the first look into the reality series which was pitched by the late DJ before he died on August 28 at the age of 36. Among the footage seen in the trailer is the one time when AM encourages a teen that "it's not too late" to get a clean life.
As of Monday, October 6, MTV announced that they would resume with the airing of the show based on the consent from AM's family. In an open letter, the family wrote, "After careful consideration we have decided to air the show. Adam felt strongly that by doing this series, he could help other addicts who were at a crisis point to get sober. Adam was fully aware that if it were not for his own sobriety, he never would have achieved the level of success and happiness he had found."
The eight one-hour episodes will follow AM on his quest to help young addicts bouncing back from their unhealthy life. Teens between the age of 20 to 25 are offered a chance of recovery with the support from their family and friends. It will be premiered on October 12 at 10/9c.
