Dr. Drew tries to retell HIV story on 'I'm Positive'

Dr. Drew will soon retell the story of aids.

Dr. Drew Pinsky, who leads Dr. Drew Productions and hosts “Loveline,” will partner with MTV for a 60-minute special called “I’m Positive.”

The special will follow the lives of three Americans who are HIV-positive in observance of World AIDS Day being on Saturday.

The show follows Stephanie, Kelly and Otis and documents their struggles living with the virus, and also battling stigma.

Lauren Bosworth (“The Hills”) from Octagon Entertainment apparently approached Pinsky to get involved, according to an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

He also points out that people have forgotten that 1.2 million people still have this disease and that the manifestation of HIV has changed, so the story needs to be retold.

Pinsky will also participate in the President’s AIDS policy, the first time an initiative takes place at the White House.

“I’m Positive” airs Saturday night on MTV at 7 p.m. ET. A post show segment where Pinsky sits down with the three subjects of the show in front of a small studio audience will air on MTV.com immediately following the program.
