A&E Network announces that Intervention and Obsessed are returning to its Monday slate on June 28. GRB Productions’ Intervention will premiere its ninth season with an episode featuring an intervention on a mother and her son, a series first. The series received an Emmy last year for Outstanding Reality Series and profiles an addicted person per episode.
Tijuana Entertainment’s Obsessed returns to A&E with its second season which includes episodes about a man who is unemployed because of his obsession with odd numbers and a young artist who has rituals of checking, tapping and counting and she believes the rituals are keeping her mother from dying of cancer.
A&E Network, federal agencies and non-profit organizations have also launched The Recovery Project, a multi-year, multi-platform initiative that aims to help raise awareness that addiction is treatable and recovery is possible.
