A&E to premiere 'Intervention's sixth season on December 15
By John Bracchitta, 11/11/2008
A&E Network has announced that it will premiere the sixth season of Intervention, a docu-reality series that profiles people across the country who are struggling with addictions, on Monday, December 15 at 9PM ET/PT.
Similar to the show's previous seasons, each sixth-season Intervention episode will follow the life of an addict and give viewers an inside look at the impact addictions have on everyday life.
While the addicts are unaware that an intervention is being planned, each Intervention episode concludes with friends, family, and a professional interventionist urging the addict to get treatment. If they choose treatment, the addict immediately enters a respected treatment facility (Intervention works with treatment and recovery centers throughout the country).
Intervention's sixth-season premiere will focus on Janet, a 50-year-old twice-divorced mother of four whose addiction to alcohol and sex has cost her her family. Janet's addictions began when she met a drug smuggler at age 18 and ended up marrying into a life of wealth, glamour and endless partying.
Intervention is produced for A&E by GRB Entertainment, and Dan Partland and Sam Mettler are executive producers. Robert Sharenow and Colleen Conway serve as the show's A&E executive producers.
