'Shooting Sizemore' Takes Aim at Actor's Road to Recovery

Tom Sizemore Fights His Way Back To The Top Of The Hollywood A-List In The New VH1 Series Premiering Sunday, January 7 At 10:30pm*

NEW YORK, Jan. 2 -- For the last 15 years, actor Tom Sizemore has led an A-List life, working with such acclaimed film directors as Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, and Ridley Scott. But underneath it all, Tom's life was combusting.

The documentary series "Shooting Sizemore," premiering January 7 at 10:30pm, chronicles the harrowing, intimate journey of a talented actor as he attempts to redeem himself and get both his life and career back on track while fighting the demons of his past.

Once at the top of his game, Sizemore's career came to a screeching halt when in a matter of months his methamphetamine and heroin addiction led to his downward spiral. As a result he lost jobs, went into bankruptcy and lost his home. Filming from the moment he walks out of rehab and with unlimited access, VH1 follows Tom and his small remaining entourage, including Luree, his jaded but fiercely loyal personal assistant as he tries to put his life back together.

Interspersed in the documentary are pointed flashbacks of Tom's own never- before-seen personal footage spanning the last few years -- filming himself on drugs, succumbing to bouts of terrifying paranoia and rage. This black-and- white, grainy handheld footage is a searing and honest look into Tom Sizemore's innermost thoughts and fears.

As each setback and challenge unfolds onscreen, viewers will come to know a man who has a forceful determination to live again. He is a man on a mission to be accepted by his peers while he attempts to climb back to the upper echelon of his craft and most importantly to remain a committed father to his twin children.

"Shooting Sizemore" is a production of VH1 in conjunction with Tijuana Entertainment. Troy Searer and John Foy serve as Executive Producers for Tijuana. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, Damla Dogan, Stella Stolper and Alex Demyanenko are Executive Producers for VH1 with Michael Hirschorn also serving as Executive Producer.
