The A&E network’s fixation with fixing the broken may continue with ‘The Incurables,’ a sobering look at people on the cusp of a personal crisis due to their irrational behavior.
Developing the docuseries pilot for A&E are Ryan Seacrest (who in addition to his ‘American Idol’ duties produces such shows as ‘Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami’) and British self-help guru Paul McKenna – with the latter appearing on camera to (hopefully) lead the subjects away from the precipice, says Deadline.com.
A&E of course is already the home to ‘Intervention‘ (in which the addicted are duped into dueling with their demons), ‘Hoarders‘ (aka people who take “pack rat” to the next level), and ‘Obsessed‘ (about those held prisoner by their anxieties).
In fact, ‘Intervention’ boss Sam Mettler – a Syracuse University alum and my onetime dorm neighbor, holla! – is on board to exec-produce ‘The Incurables’ with Seacrest and McKenna.
Which A&E series is your favorite, any why do we find such shows so compelling?
