Syfy Premieres COLLECTION INTERVENTION Tuesday, August 14 at 10PM ET/PT

The six-episode series follows Elyse Luray as she “helps couples, families and individuals whose pop-culture memorabilia collections have become damaging obsessions.”

In Syfy‘s newest reality series, Collection Intervention, premiering Tuesday, August 14 at 10PM (ET/PT), former Head of Special Collections at Christie’s, Elyse Luray helps couples, families and individuals whose pop-culture memorabilia collections – from Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica to Catwoman and Barbie – have become damaging obsessions, creating financial strife and a huge strain on their lives.

In each of the six hour-long episodes, Elyse will create a strategy that helps these collectors curate and showcase their collection by assessing where the true value lies and then allow them to decide what’s worth keeping and what they can sell. These massive collections include dining rooms stuffed with 30,000 comic books, a garage filled to the rafters with Catwoman memorabilia, and an almost uninhabitable house filled with Transformers. For each collector, parting with some of their collection may free up some much needed space in their home, provide a cash windfall to get out of debt, or even just allow a couple to become more focused on their relationship.

In the premiere episode titled “A Disturbance in the Force,” what started out as a single room dedicated to Star Wars has grown to take over the entire Concord, California home of Garet and Consetta. When Elyse quickly realizes the Star Wars collection has intense emotional meaning to Consetta, she fears that Consetta may not be able to part with a single item. If Elyse is going to help this couple take back their house, she’s going to have to use The Force to break through to them.

Also in the episode, disgruntled Los Angeles housewife Lolly calls Elyse to see if she can help her husband Mark let go of some of his extensive Catwoman collection so they can start to pay some bills. When Elyse sees the collection, which has overtaken their garage, she is stunned by the poor manner in which Mark has stored the collectibles he says he loves. Nonetheless, to save their relationship and pay down their debt, Elyse helps Mark identify what in his collection is truly important to him while pushing him to let go of what is not.

Collection Intervention is produced by High Noon Entertainment with executive producers Pam Healey, Jim Berger and Elizabeth Grizzle Voorhees.

Star Trek Celebration to feature EPIX Original Docs William Shatner’s GET A LIFE! and THE CAPTAINS plus 11 Star Trek Movies

EPIX, the premium entertainment network, today announced a free preview of the EPIX app on Xbox 360(R) along with a special programming event, Shatnerific: A Celebration of Star Trek Fandom, bringing together EPIX Original Documentaries about the franchise with 11 popular Star Trek movies to be made available July 28 – 29. A featured event on the Xbox LIVE dashboard, the Star Trek Celebration will make premium programming normally available only to Xbox LIVE Gold customers accessible to all Xbox LIVE subscribers.

Following up the success of the EPIX Original Documentary The Captains, an in-depth look at the Star Trek franchise through the experiences of each actor who has played a Starfleet captain, Shatner returns with William Shatner’s Get a Life! which explores the flip side of the coin in the Star Trek phenomena: the fans.

Along with the EPIX Original Documentaries, the Celebration of Star Trek Fandom will also feature an Xbox 360(R) exclusive presentation of all 11 Star Trek films, from the original Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) to the most recent Star Trek (2009).

“Xbox is a great partner for EPIX and we are thrilled to offer this unique experience to the massive fan base that the Star Trek franchise enjoys. Through this partnership we are able to reach an expanded audience that is using Xbox 360 and engage fans with our content to drive even greater awareness of our multiplatform offering,” said Mark Greenberg, EPIX CEO and President.

About the EPIX Original Documentary
William Shatner’s Get a Life! – Premiering July 28 at 8pm EST Based on Shatner’s hugely popular book (in response to his now infamous skit on SNL), this film examines the mystery, longevity and the cultural phenomena of Star Trek and its long-obsessed fans known as “Trekkers.” On the surface, the film is an exploration of strangers who have for years attended conventions which looked foolish and almost laughable to some – but Shatner discovers the many secrets and hidden motives behind these individuals’ compulsion to attend these events. The end result is a film that reveals a fun and touching side of the fanfare surrounding Star Trek, and examines the thrill of what’s happening at these fantasy conventions and the enduring popularity of the film and TV series as Shatner further embraces his role as Captain James T. Kirk and his own impact.

About the EPIX Original Documentary

The Captains
An EPIX original documentary produced and directed by William Shatner, The Captains follows the iconic star as he travels the world to connect with each of the actors who have played captains over the long life of the Star Trek franchise including Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula, Avery Brooks, and Chris Pine.

TV Land Celebrates the Life of Beloved TV Icon Sherman Hemsley

TV Land will honor the life and work of comedic actor Sherman Hemsley with a four-hour marathon of his memorable episodes of The Jeffersons on Saturday, July 28th from 12pm-4pm ET/PT. Hemsley, who passed away on Tuesday at the age of 74, is beloved for his portrayal of George Jefferson on the groundbreaking Norman Lear sitcom. The TV Land Facebook page (www.facebook.com/tvland) will also pay tribute to Hemsley, celebrating some of his greatest moments on television.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Sherman Hemsley,” said Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. “Sherman was part of the TV Land family and his many contributions to television will be treasured. He will be sorely missed.”

Born in South Philadelphia, Hemsley made his Broadway debut in 1970 as Gitlow in Purlie. Soon after that, he was offered the part of entrepreneur and dry cleaner owner George Jefferson on Lear’s sitcom All in the Family. Hemsley’s character, George Jefferson, became so popular that Lear created a spin-off in 1975 – The Jeffersons. The character of George Jefferson garnered Hemsley Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. The Jeffersons ran for ten years and continues to run on TV Land today.

Hemsley later created more history by playing the egotistical, know-it-all deacon/lawyer at the First Community Church of Philadelphia on Amen. The series broke ground by being the first hit sitcom centered on religion and ran from 1986 to 1991. In addition to these memorable series, Hemsley continued in other supporting roles in feature films and television shows such as Love at First Bite and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. He was also a professional singer and released an album in 1992.
