MTV airs True Life marathon Saturday

Tomorrow starting at 2 p.m. ET, MTV will air a marathon of its first-person documentary series True Life.

The series, which previously has followed an assortment of people from those addicted to crystal meth or others who have rivalries with their siblings, will air three new episodes, according to MTV.

The episodes are “I’m in a Long Distance Relationship,” starting at 3, “I’m a High School Senior 2,” airing at 4; and “I Live on the Border,” airing at 5. The last one follows life on the US-Mexico border. On both sides of the new episodes, at 2 and 6, MTV re-airs a show that catches up with past True Life subjects.
