VH1'S NEW SERIES "GOING FOR BROKE" AIN'T NO JOKE FOR COMEDIAN/ACTOR EDDIE GRIFFIN

The Six Episode Docu-Series Shows How Eddie Deals With the Pressure of Supporting Eight Kids, Two Ex-Wives, Four "Baby Mamas" and the Rest of the Griffin Family

"Eddie Griffin: Going for Broke" Premieres Monday January 26 at 10 PM* on VH1

NEW YORK, NY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 - From his sitcom "Malcolm and Eddie," to movies like "Undercover Brother" to his sold-out standup tours, comedian Eddie Griffin is a major player in the comedy game. He's also one of the hardest working men in the entertainment industry. And he better be because he's supporting eight children, two ex-wives, four "baby-mamas" and an entourage of family and friends. It's a large extended family that makes this comedian's life complete. The problem: they're also bleeding him dry. And now Eddie Griffin is in danger of going broke.

Premiering Monday, January 26 at 10 PM ET/PT, "Eddie Griffin: Going for Broke" is a 30-minute docu-series that will give viewers an intimate look into Eddie's struggle to support himself and a rather large and complicated extended family. In fact, his generosity and sense of responsibility are what put him in a financial nose dive. Simply put, Eddie's earnings can't keep pace with his elaborate lifestyle.

But there is one person who might be able to help him figure it all out. Enter Doris, Eddie's mom, the one person who can give him a big dose of tough love. Will mom tolerate the blow-out parties and fast Hollywood life that Eddie loves so much? Can she open his eyes to the fact that his life is out of control? That's up to Eddie.

"Eddie Griffin: Going for Broke" is executive produced by Eddie Griffin. Leslie Grief, Adam Reed and Bill Hochauser are executive producers for Grief Co. Executive Producer Jim Ackerman, Jeff Olde, and Supervising Producer Mike Riley oversee the series for VH1.
