One minute they're posing for the press — the next they're running from the spotlight. This factual series is about celebrities who were caught committing crime or something just plain wrong and embarrassing, yet managed to survive the scandal with careers intact and in some cases even flourishing afterward. From driving under the influence, to shoplifting, to tax evasion, to beating up paparazzi, or being the victim of an embarrassing blackmail scam, this series unveils Hollywood's most notorious celebrity scandals and reveals what celebrities did to survive the upheaval.
Robert Downey Jr., Sean Penn, Charlie Sheen, Hugh Grant, Mel Gibson, Rob Lowe and many more have all had a brush with the law and this series examines every case with commentary from public relations agents, pop culture experts and lawyers to find out why celebrities are forgiven and deemed innocent by the public — even if proven guilty.
"Celebrity Damage Control" is produced by CMJ Productions.
