Eddie Griffin: Going For Broke premiered on VH1 on September 14, 2009. Eddie Griffin has eight children, two ex-wives, four "baby-mamas" and an entourage of family and friends who make his life complete. Problem is... they are also bleeding him dry - financially. This is a docu-series that will give viewers an intimate look into Eddie's struggle to get his life under control and how he deals with the pressure of supporting himself and his whole family. Eddie's problem is his generous heart, preventing him from making the painful choices necessary to bring himself out of a financial nose dive. Enter Doris, Eddie's mom, who's just the person to give him a big dose of tough love. Will Mom tolerate the blow-out parties and fast Hollywood life that Eddie loves so much? Her efforts to do this are proving unsuccessful. Can she open Eddie's eyes to the fact that his life is out of control? That's up to Eddie.
