“Intervention” is coming back.
The docuseries profiled those who were brought the the brink by an addiction to drugs, alcohol or compulsive behavior and documented the ensuing intervention. It won an Emmy in 2009 for outstanding reality program.
“Over the course of 13 seasons on A&E, Intervention wove itself into the fabric of pop culture and brought global awareness to addiction and treatment options,” FYI & LMN president Jana Bennett said in a statement. “The stories profiled on this series are profoundly powerful, and we are proud to continue it on LMN.”
Original interventionists Jeff Van Vonderen and Candy Finnigan are set to return. It will be produced by the original producers, GRB Entertainment. Production will begin this summer, with the series slated to air in the first quarter of 2015.
Gary R. Benz, Michael Branton and Jeffrey L. Weaver produce for GRB Entertainment. Laura Fleury and Jen Wagman produce for LMN. The series was originally created by Sam Mettler.
