The network will proceed with plans to air the drug documentary program weeks after the entertainer’s death.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – MTV is set to begin airing a documentary series produced by late entertainer DJ AM, who real name is Adam Goldstein, next week. As reported by Us Magazine, the network has received consent from the family of Goldstein, who passed away in August after a drug overdose, to proceed with plans to air the program “Gone Too Far,” which focuses on individuals struggling with addiction.
Goldstein’s family is quoted by Us Magazine as releasing the 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.”
