Report: 'Celebrity Rehab' producers pitching 'Sober Living' spinoff

By Christopher Rocchio, 07/07/2008 

Now that several Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew participants are on the wagon, viewers may reportedly have the chance to see them try to stay on.

Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew producers are pitching to VH1 a spinoff of the reality series titled Sober Living, The New York Post reported Monday.

Sober Living would reportedly put several of the show's alumni together in a Beverly Hills mansion for 30 days as they attempt to re-launch their jilted careers without drugs and alcohol.  David Drew "Dr. Drew" Pinsky would also be "prominently featured" in the spin-off, The Post reported.

While The Post reported filming could commence as early as next week, VH1 has yet to actually order the show and a network spokeswoman declined comment.

Celebrity Rehab first-season patient Seth "Shifty" Binzer and second-season cast members Amber Smith and Steven Adler have already been approached by producers to appear on Sober Living, The Post reported.

Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew's seven second-season participants were released from their intensive 21-day detoxification and treatment program last Saturday, according to The Post.  The show's second season is slated to debut August 4.

Those Celebrity Rehab participants who complete the 21-day program are encouraged to continue their treatment in a sober living facility or treatment center on VH1's dime -- so a spinoff of the series documenting that process is not that far-fetched.

Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is executive produced by John Irwin and Damian Sullivan for Irwin Entertainment. Pinsky and Howard Lapides are also executive producing. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes and Noah Pollack are executive producers for VH1.
