Rodney King to appear on VH1's 'Celebrity Rehab'

LOS ANGELES, CA The show features famous people dealing with drug and alcohol problems aided by celebrity addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky.

King, whose 1991 beating by Los Angeles police led to deadly rioting the next year, prompting him to make a famously earnest plea for peace, will appear with actor Jeff Conaway, former Guns 'N Roses drummer Steven Adler, Rod Stewart's son Sean and actress Tawny Kitaen.

The new season is slated to premiere in October, the network said Tuesday.
