New York, NY � December 20, 2007 � Can panic attacks keep someone from doing everyday activities? Will the pressures of conforming to a family's standards prove too much to handle for some people? What's it like to be locked up in prison, living everyday behind bars and then suddenly set free? Get these questions answered and more when MTV News & Docs airs brand new episodes of its award winning series "True Life" starting with "True Life: I'm The Black Sheep," True Life: I Panic" and "True Life: I'm An Alcoholic" on Saturday, January 5th beginning at 2pm ET/PT, then on January 14th at 10pm ET/PT with "True Life: I'm Getting Out of Prison" and on January 21st at 10pm ET/PT with "True Life: I'm Happy to Be Fat."

The following is a detailed description of the episodes and their air dates:

January 5th:

2pm ET/PT - True Life: I'm The Black Sheep - Most families have their differences, but what if you actually feel like an alien among your own flesh and blood? On this episode of True Life, you'll meet three young people who consider themselves outcasts in their own homes but still are desperate to win their parent's approval.

3pm ET/PT - True Life: I Panic � Everybody worries sometimes. But what happens if you're one of the estimated two and a half million Americans whose anxieties spiral into recurring and uncontrollable panic attacks? On this episode of True life, we'll meet three young people struggling to overcome their panic disorder so they can live normal lives.

4pm ET/PT - True Life: I'm An Alcoholic - What if every time you took a sip of alcohol you couldn't stop drinking until it was hard to walk, talk, or even think? That's the grim reality for the estimated five and a half million Americans under 25 who are alcoholics. In this episode of True Life, you'll meet two young women struggling to overcome this relentless addiction that's destroying their lives.

January 14th:

10pm ET/PT - True Life: I'm Getting Out of Prison - What's it like to be locked up in prison for months or even years - and then be set free into a stressful and sometimes hostile outside world?

January 21st:

10pm ET/PT - True Life: I'm Happy to be Fat - Is it truly possible to be overweight and proud of it? In this episode of True Life we feature three overweight people who could not be more pleased with themselves and their bodies. They do not subscribe to a culture obsessed with stick figures. Rather, they defy the norm by declaring themselves as big and beautiful. But can the challenges of being large in today's society chip away at their self-confidence?
