Collection Intervention


Collection Intervention follows Elyse Luray, former Head of the Collectibles Department at Christie's, as she 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. 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 cash windfall to get out of debt, or even just allow a couple to become more focused on their relationship. Watch what happens when seemingly harmless collections become uncontrollable obsessions!

Marlo's wife, Margo, is fed up with the money Marlo pours into his collections and his "model bashing" hobby. Marlo takes parts and pieces from multiple action figures and creates new figures to display in his home. This new phenomenon is creative and artistic, but can also be extremely cost prohibitive. Can Elyse help these two find some common ground before they damage their relationship? David started collecting Flintstones memorabilia with his mother when he was just a small child. Now that she has passed away, David is even more emotionally attached to his collection. His friend, Ray, is concerned that the collection is taking over David's life and he needs to get a handle on it before it completely consumes him.
