Extractors, which premiered April 17th on A&E, followed Bullet and his team as they located, intervened and extracted young men and women whose uncontrollable addiction to drugs or out of control behavior had led them into situations they could no longer get themselves out of.

Standard interventions take place in a safe and controlled environment with family and close friends; Extractions, both performed and created by Mr. Evan "Bullet" James, can take place anywhere, anytime, and the team of extractors never know what or who is behind the closed door housing the troubled individual.
