(Los Angeles, CA) - TLC decks out its schedule for a weeklong holiday celebration this year, as "'tis the TLC Season" delivers all-new specials and Christmas-themed episodes of fan-favorite series. Across seven nights - December 7 - 14 - the network will unwrap all-new seasonal programming and other special gifts for viewers.

The week will lead up to the debut of TLC's new two-hour film, THE SECRET SANTA. The film follows the trail of a mystery figure associated with a string of Christmas "miracles" across the country, and features first-person accounts and extraordinary home video of his exploits that simply cannot be explained - like conjuring a field of snowmen in the middle of the Arizona desert. Who is he? How has he made seemingly impossible Christmas wishes come true? One investigative reporter believes she may have the answer: she's traced his history of good deeds back decades, and while he's used different aliases over the years, she's convinced that the man behind the identity of THE SECRET SANTA, may in fact be the real thing... The special airing Sunday, December 14 at 7/6c was created by Charlie Foley and written by Foley and Vaibhav Bhatt.

TLC is also delivering one of the biggest fan gifts ever - a personal reading from LONG ISLAND MEDIUM's Theresa Caputo. During its most recent season, viewers had a chance to enter to win a "Knock and Shock" reading, and now the winner will be surprised LIVE on air when Theresa shows up on their doorstep to give a reading in their own home. The event will air during a special holiday episode of LONG ISLAND MEDIUM on Sunday, December 7 at 8/7c, featuring Theresa and her family participating in a charity event at her dad's firehouse, where she and Larry agree to dress as Mr. & Mrs. Claus, and of course help people connect with their loved ones who have passed on. Live cut-ins with Theresa and the lucky winner will also continue throughout the night.

"Nothing brings families together and warms the heart like the holidays," said Nancy Daniels, General Manager, TLC. "Our programming celebrates the season and captures the excitement, humor, and love that we know our audience is also experiencing this time of the year."

The rest of the 'tis the TLC Season schedule features new specials, including DECK THE HALLS WITH DR. CHRISTMAS, airing December 12 at 9/8c, goes inside the world of Bob Pranga - aka Dr. Christmas - and his partner Debi Staron as they transform Hollywood homes into remarkable winter wonderlands. Celebrity clients this year include celebrities Brooke Burke-Charvet, Mario Lopez, and Alison Sweeney who invite viewers into their homes as they put their holiday spirit into overdrive.

Fans can join in the celebration by checking TLC.com for holiday tips and inspiration, visiting Facebook.com/TLC, and by sharing photos of their own holiday moments on social media with #TLCSeason for a chance to win gifts and prizes.

THE SECRET SANTA is produced for TLC by The Original Content Group.
