Intervention, A&E’s docu-reality series about peoplein the USAwho are struggling with addictions will premiere it’s sixth season on December 15 at 9 PM ET. As with previous seasons of the show, each episode will follow the life of an addict and give viewers an inside look at the impact addictions have on everyday life.
Each week, the show revolves around an addict who has no idea that an intervention is being planned. They are caught off guard by family and friends and a professional interventionist and urged to seek treatment for their addiction. If they agree, the addict immediately enters a respected treatment facility.
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 at the age of 18 when she met a drug smuggler and subsiquently married into a life of wealth, glamour and endless partying.
The show 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.
