MTV announced today that DJ AM's Addiction series will finally air. The eight-part series will broadcast on MTV starting Monday, Oct. 12, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, will posthumously attempt to prevent others from the same fate. The DJ died of an accidental drug overdose in August at age 36. Prior to his death, he shot an MTV series called Gone Too Far.
The show features interviews with addicts and covers their attempts to change as well as AM's struggle to overcome drug abuse.
The Goldstein family said in a statement: "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. Helping people in their recovery was a huge part of Adam's life. 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 decision to air the show has been difficult, but we do this with the profound belief that it will inspire others to seek help."
