Exploring the turning point in celebrities' careers that altered their lives forever, the half-hour series highlights these moments from the point of view of the celebrity and those in their inner circle.

· Camille Winbush - from her big break at age 11 on "The Bernie Mac Show" to her struggle with Mac's death in 2008, the actress recounts her path to an incredible career as an performer, businesswoman, and teen spokesmodel.

· Regina Belle - the singer discusses her struggle to overcome brain cancer amidst a musical career that has taken her from enchanting audiences worldwide with "A Whole New World," in Disney's Aladdin to performing opera, R&B and gospel.

· Marion Jones - the Olympic medalist will reveal the anguish and humiliation she endured after it was discovered that she used performance-enhancing drugs and was stripped of her medals, banned from track and field, and sent to prison.

· Dionne Warwick - the five-time Grammy winner who has an impressive track record of 56 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 List is now prepping for her 50th anniversary album and actively promoting AIDS awareness around the world.

"We've cheered their successes and wept for their losses. Life After allows the celebs we think we know, to share intimate secrets, reveal the lessons learned on their journey, and bring us closer to their true selves."
