A+E Networks is partnering with PPI Releasing for the U.S. broadcast syndication launch of Intervention.
Targeting the U.S. 2019-20 broadcast season, 175 episodes of the Emmy Award-winning Intervention will be launched into syndication at NATPE Miami. Each episode of the long-running show follows addicts through their daily life and the devastation their dependency has brought to their family and friends. Upon reaching the brink, their loved ones stage a surprise intervention conducted by one of four specialists.
“PPI is the perfect partner to deliver this important series to the syndication marketplace,” said A+E Networks International Executive Managing Directors Patrick Vien and Edward Sabin. “We acknowledge PPI’s long-running expertise in domestic distribution and are delighted with their commitment to this acclaimed series, a series that highlights one of the most vital and important issues of the day.”
“What makes this series incredibly effective television is the emotional conflict at the heart of every Intervention,” said PPI co-founder Ritch Colbert. “This conflict is real, it’s passionate, and it touches every family in America today. We applaud GRB and A+E Networks for their singular achievement, and we are humbled by the opportunity to launch Intervention in syndication.”
