A&E NETWORK'S AWARD-WINNING DOCUMENTARY SERIES INTERVENTION RETURNS FOR A SIXTH SEASON

13 ONE-HOUR EPISODES BEGIN MONDAY, DECEMBER 15

NEW YORK, NY, NOVEMBER 11, 2008 � The 2008 Emmy-nominee for Outstanding Reality Program, A&E's series INTERVENTION, which profiles people who are struggling with addictions and the friends and family members who are seeking to help them, returns for a sixth season with all new episodes beginning on Monday, December 15 at 9pm ET/PT.

The season opener of the three-time Prism Award-winning series profiles Janet, a mother of four whose addiction to alcohol and sex has cost her her family. At age 50, Janet's suppressed memories of molestation and being heavily teased and bullied by other kids throughout her childhood are coming to a head. Her addiction began when she was swept off her feet at the age of 18 by a big-time drug smuggler and married into a life of wealth, glamour and endless partying. Today, after two failed marriages and four children, she seeks solace in drugs and alcohol, often putting herself in life-threatening situations.

INTERVENTION is a powerful and gripping series in which people confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. The series profiles people whose dependence on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior has brought them to a point of personal crisis and estranged them from their friends and loved ones. Each episode ends with a surprise intervention that is staged by the family and friends of the addict, and which is conducted by one of three specialists: Jeff VanVonderen, Candy Finningan and Ken Seeley. Exclusive updated interviews with past subjects from the series first five seasons are available on AETV.com/intervention.

Inspired by the incredible response from viewers, individuals and families in recovery to the series, A&E Network along with leading federal agencies and non-profit organizations launched The Recovery Project. The multi-year, multi-platform initiative was designed to help raise awareness that addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is possible. On September 27th more than 5,000 people, including Individuals and families in recovery, treatment partners and advocates from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, gathered in New York City for a historic walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to symbolize unity and hope for recovery. The walk ended in City Hall Park and was followed by a rally featuring public speakers and musical performances.

A&E continues to co-host, along with the Partnership for a Drug Free America (PDFA), and leading MSOs such as Time Warner Cable, Cox and Comcast, Intervention Town Hall meetings in cities across the country. The Town Hall meetings offer opportunities for parents, teens, addicts, government officials, health professionals, substance abuse prevention experts and educators to develop a better understanding about the root causes and consequences of addiction.

Robert Sharenow and Colleen Conway are the executive producers for A&E Network. INTERVENTION is produced for A&E Network by GRB. Dan Partland and Sam Mettler are executive producers. The series was created by Sam Mettler.

A&E is "Real Life. Drama." Now reaching more than 97 million homes, A&E is television that you can't turn away from; where real life shows are dramatic and scripted dramas are authentic.
