'Collection Intervention' Premiering With Star Wars Themed Episode & Familiar Faces

By: Benjamin Hart

The Syfy channel is set to launch a new reality show entitled "Collection Intervention", which premieres tonight at 10PM (ET/PT). The series, hosted by Elyse Luray, focuses on helping "couples, families and individuals whose pop-culture memorabilia collections Рfrom Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica to Catwoman and Barbie Рhave become damaging obsessions, creating financial strife and a huge strain on their lives." The premiere episode will feature Consetta Parker, and her husband Garet. If you're not familiar, Consetta is a publicist for actors James Arnold Taylor and Catherine Taber, the voices of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padm̩ Amidala on The Clone Wars, respectively.

Here is the synopsis for the the first episode:

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.
