TI's Road to Redemption Gets Real

Rapper TI's MTV reality show "Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go" is set to debut next week with a 1 hour episode on February 10th at 9PM EST. It won't feature 7 strangers picked to live in a cell block, but instead will feature a look at TI doing community service hours while trying to be a role model and reduce his prison sentence.

The new MTV series arises from TI's criminal charges for gun possession back in 2007. His lawyers negotiated a reduced sentence conditional upon TI completing 1,000 hours of community service by the end of March 2009. The reality show will have TI attempting to do his community service while teaching youngsters not to head down a similar path as he has.

According to one of MTV's executives behind the show:

"MTV has always given artists a platform to get their stories and music out to their fans and this series reveals the unknown side of T.I. -- one of the world's greatest artists at the most precarious time in his life," said Tony DiSanto, Executive Vice President, Series Development and Programming. "In the face of impending incarceration, T.I. is driven to ensure others do not make the same mistakes, and our cameras document every step along this road as he impacts and changes lives for the better. It is real-time redemption."


Every Tuesday there will be another half hour installment of the series airing at 9:30PM EST. The grand finale comes on March 31st, when everyone learns if TI has completed his necessary 1,000 hours of community service or not. It definitely has the feel of one of those reality TV shows where someone wins a big cash prize, only in this instance the prize is TI's personal freedom. Check out "Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go" starting February 10th at 9PM EST on MTV.
