*** UPDATED PREMIERE DATE ***
NEW YORK, NY – FEBRUARY 10, 2015 – A&E’s Emmy® Award-winning and critically-acclaimed docuseries “Intervention” returns to the network for an all-new season on Sunday, March 22 at 9PM after a one-hour special covering the first 10 years of the groundbreaking series at 8PM ET/PT.
“Intervention” profiles people whose uncontrollable addiction to drugs, alcohol or compulsive behavior has brought them to the brink of destruction and has devastated their family and friends. Twice nominated and in 2009 awarded the Emmy® for Outstanding Reality Series, the five-time PRISM Award-winning series “Intervention” brings attention to the enormous social, economic and environmental cost of addiction. Original interventionists Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan, Ken Seeley and Donna Chavous return to present them with the life-changing opportunity of an intervention and rehab. Each addict must confront their darkest demons in order to begin their journey to recovery in the hopes that they can turn their lives around before it’s too late.
In the one-hour “Intervention 10th Anniversary Special” preceding the new season premiere, original interventionists and production crew look back on memorable moments in series history and discuss its impact on pop culture.
“Intervention” is produced by GRB Entertainment for A&E Network. Executive producers for GRB Entertainment are Gary R. Benz, Michael Branton and Jeffrey L. Weaver. Executive producers for A&E are Brad Holcman and Laurie Sharpe. Series was originally created by Sam Mettler.
