New York, NY � January 29, 2009 � As we all embrace the positive change that the country is now facing, MTV has also taken an oath to promote change with "T.I.'s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go" and the return of "From G's To Gents" premiering on Tuesday, February 10th at 9:00PM � 11:30PM ET/PT. These shows are not only dedicated to changing the lives of these "hustlers" and "G's", but they are also determined to show them that there is life beyond the streets.

In "T.I.'s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go," viewers will not only watch as T.I. attempts to help change the lives of desperate teenagers across the country, but they will also get a behind-the-scenes peek at the most private and personal moments of one of today's hottest most sought after artists on the verge of leaving his glittering career for time behind bars.

"From G's To Gents" features author, recording artist and arbiter of good taste Fonzworth Bentley serving as mentor, life coach and confidante to these young men who all believe they have what it takes to shed their bad boy images and make life altering changes. In addition to hosting, Fonzworth has joined the production team to help focus more on bringing out the real life stories of these young men. "From Gs To Gents" is not just another television show for me and the crew, it is a transformational program whose desire is to help young men expand their choices in life," says Fonzworth. "It was important for me to be a part of the production team so that I can add another layer of support to our mission."

Below are detailed descriptions of "T.I.'s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go" and "From G's To Gents":

"T.I.'s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go"

As he begins counting down the days to his impending March 2009 sentencing for weapons charges, Grammy-winning superstar T.I. finds himself at a remarkable crossroads. At the very apex of his career, he's facing up to 30 years of jail time for an arrest stemming from his earlier life. However, as part of a deal worked out between his lawyers and the federal government, if he completes an amazing 1000 hours of community service during the year ending this March, that sentence may be reduced. At 27, finding himself at the very high- and low-point of his adult life, he's seeking redemption in helping others avoid the mistakes he made. In the new docu-series "T.I.'s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go" cameras follow T.I.'s efforts to save himself by saving others. "T.I.'s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go" is a moving title. Each week, the title will change to reflect the amount of time left to his sentencing. The final episode will air shortly after T.I.'s fate is revealed. In order to communicate his message, he has to give each teenager a tough love lesson in life and show them the consequences of what could happen if they continue down the wrong path. "T.I.'s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go" will premiere on Tuesday, February 10 at 9:00PM ET/PT. Subsequent episodes will air in the show's regular timeslot at 9:30pm ET/PT.

From G's To Gents

"From G's to Gents" is back with a whole new crop of G's hoping to shed their troubled past and make the change towards becoming a gentleman. Led by Fonzworth Bentley, the guys will be guided through new lessons and challenges ranging in everything from Style, Chivalry, Work Ethic, and Philanthropy. Over the course of the ten hour-long episodes, the men will be tested on how well, and willingly, they absorb the lessons of all that it takes to become a "Gentleman." Each week, the G that fails to grow closer to becoming a Gentleman will be eliminated and denied membership to the "Gentleman's Club." In the end, one G will walk away with 100,000 dollars and the opportunity to call themselves a true Gentleman. "From G's To Gents" will premiere with an hour and a half special on February 10th from 10:00PM -11:30PM ET/PT.
