New York, NY (June 24, 2008) � MTV, executive producer Jamie Foxx and executive producer Cris Abrego head to the hood to find 14 young G's with gruff exteriors and unrelenting street swagger, and put them to the ultimate challenge of their lives � pull up their pants, check their egos and transform them into true gentlemen. Beginning Tuesday, July 15th at 10:00 pm ET/PT "From G's to Gents" will feature author, recording artist and arbiter of good taste Fonzworth Bentley serving as mentor, life coach and confidante to these young men who all believe they have what it takes to shed their bad boy images and make life altering changes. Fonzworth will also host "MTV's Top 10 Gentleman of The Year" which will list some of today's most popular celebs who've gone from rugged to refined on Saturday, June 28th at 2:00 PM (et/pt).

Hailing from New York, New Jersey, Detroit, California, Miami and Puerto Rico to name a few contestants on the series will participate in weekly challenges in everything from style, etiquette, chivalry, business and more. Throughout the season they will learn that with the right tools, every G has the ability to find respect, realize their self-worth and graduate from G to true gentleman. In the end, the G who fully absorbs these lessons walks away with added skills, panache and $100,000 to jump start a whole new life. Making cameo appearances in select challenges are music and business mogul Master P, food and wine expert Ted Allen, music producer Irv Gotti, designer Ozwald Boateng and platinum recording artists Danity Kane. Do these men possess the determination to make a positive change in their lives or will pressure prove too much for them? If you're looking for drama, grit, passion and heart, "From G's to Gent's" promises all of that and more.
