NEW YORK (AP) - MTV is going ahead with plans to air the late DJ AM's "Gone too Far" documentary series, in which he and concerned families staged interventions for young drug abusers, with the first episode set to air Monday.

The 36-year-old celebrity spinner, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, was found in his Manhattan apartment on Aug. 28 after a friend called 911. The medical examiner's office has ruled that he died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and cocaine.

MTV says in a statement that it decided to move ahead with the eight-episode series, created and hosted by Goldstein, with the consent and support of his family.

Goldstein had openly discussed past addictions to crack cocaine, Ecstasy and other drugs.
