TLC Blossoms with Floral Designer Extraordinaire Jeff Leatham

New Series 'Flowers Uncut with Jeff Leatham' Premieres November 4 at 10:00 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, Sept. 17 -- TLC has teamed up with premiere artistic director and floral designer Jeff Leatham for the new 12-part docu-series FLOWERS UNCUT WITH JEFF LEATHAM, premiering on Wednesday, November 4 at 10:00pm. Produced by Original Media, each back-to-back half-hour episode chronicles Leatham's fast-paced lifestyle and goes behind-the-scenes as he tries to build his own floral empire and conquer the New York event design scene.

Each week, Leatham and his design assistant Mat take on an event and tackle a series of obstacles and bouts of drama along the way. From an extravagant wedding at the Waldorf Astoria and an event at Versailles in Paris, to a Victoria's Secret event and a Medieval-themed children's party, Leatham proves he can create a floral masterpiece to suit any occasion.

"Jeff is truly one of a kind in the floral design landscape," explains Nancy Daniels, SVP of Production and Development, TLC. "His dynamic personality coupled with his unprecedented talent to create magic with flowers is just fascinating to watch."

As the Artistic Director for the Four Seasons Hotels -- based in the George V in Paris -- Leatham has been creating a sensation with his floral designs since he first began working with flowers at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills in 1995. Voted Best Hotel Florist in Europe for the last three years, his expertise, without any formal training, continues to garner praise in Paris, London and New York. Design houses such as Alexander McQueen, Phillip Treacy, Swarovski Crystal, Givenchy and Burberry and D. Porthault have commissioned Leatham's signature styling.

Leatham's work is a combination of his love for flowers and aesthetics, and his passion for design. Often compared to contemporary art, his creations are bold statements using shapes, color and simplicity to produce a dramatic effect. In July 2007, he created exquisite decor for the wedding of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker. His clientele list also includes Tina Turner, Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, the Dalia Lama, Suzy Menkes and President Bill Clinton.

"We could not think of a more perfect home for this series than TLC," states Original Media CEO Charlie Corwin. "Jeff's amazing lifestyle and awe-inspiring creations are something to behold. Watching this master of his field use his flair to conquer the biggest event stage -- New York City -- really lends itself to compelling television programming. If the incredible events we have already captured are any indication, FLOWERS UNCUT WITH JEFF LEATHAM will no doubt be a hugely buzzed about program."
