TLC DIGS INTO A NEW SEASON OF "HOARDING: BURIED ALIVE" - PREMIERES SUNDAY JULY 10th at 9PM (ET/PT)
(Los Angeles, CA) -- TLC's hit series HOARDING: BURIED ALIVE returns with its nine-episode third season Sundays at 9 PM (ET/PT) beginning July 10. Revealing more towering wreckage and severe family crisis, the compelling third season dives deeper into the real-life struggles and intense treatment of extreme hoarders - people who are unable to part with their belongings to the point of personal disaster.
Each of the hour-long episodes follows one or two obsessive hoarders striving to fight the compulsion to collect and return their lives to stability. Buried under decades of collected trinkets, treasures, and rotting junk, these people are on the verge of losing everything: their jobs, their homes, and their families.
Aware that addiction is destroying their lives the hoarders agree it's time for professional intervention. With the help of expert therapists and organizers, and the support of their families, they begin the long and difficult process to overcome their compulsion. Letting go of prized possessions is not an easy undertaking, and often they face a decades-tall mountain of their own emotional past. While some will conquer this overpowering condition, others will continue to be consumed by this painful disease.
