via. J.D. @ Hip Hop Update.

Access Atlanta:

“T.I.”s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go”, bows Feb. 10 at 9 p.m. on the cable channel. Described as part “Diary,” part “Scared Straight,” the show will follow his attempts to change the lives of troubled teens, as well as offer a behind-the-scenes look at the two-time Grammy winner’s personal life, including the birth of his sixth child.

The title will change each week to reflect the time left until his sentencing, scheduled for March 27. After which, the last episode is set to air.

“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.”
