A&E announces 'Intervention' renewal, new season debuts March 16
By Christopher Rocchio, 01/10/2007
A&E Network has formally announced that it has renewed Intervention, a docu-reality series that profiles people across the country who are struggling with addictions, for a third season. The new season will air Fridays at 10PM ET/PT, a new day and time period, beginning March 16.
Like the show's first two seasons, each third seasonIntervention episode will follow the lives of an addict and give viewers an inside look at the impact addictions have on everyday life. While the show's addicts are unaware that an intervention is being planned, each episode concludes with friends, family, and a professional interventionist urging the addict to get treatment. If they choose treatment, the addict immediately enters a widely respected treatment facility (Intervention works with treatment and recovery centers throughout the country).
Intervention's second season averaged a million viewers per episode in the Adults 18-49 demographic, a 29% increase over the series' first season.
Intervention is produced for A&E by GRB Entertainment, and Bryn Freedman and Sam Mettler are executive producers. Robert Sharenow and Colleen Conway serve as the show's A&E executive producers.
