DJ AM series still set to air
MTV stated today that "Gone Too Far," a show created by the late Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein, who passed away at the end of August, will still air. The show is a documentary about the struggle of young drug addicts. DJ AM is there to help them overcome their addiction by sharing his own recovery story. Goldstein's family has consented to the airing of the show because they believe, "Adam felt strongly that by doing this series, he could help other addicts who were at a crisis point to get sober."
While the shows' purpose is admirable, it seems contradictory to air it when Goldstein's death was reportedly caused by an apparent drug overdose. Hopefully, his parent's are allowing this to go on because it really may help others, thought I can't help but think they may just be reaping the benefits of it's projected success.
The show is set to begin it's 8 episode run on October 12, at 10 p.m. on MTV.
