Cooking, Lego, ninjas, singing, dance, fashion, drag, mini-golf, glass-blowing… and now flowers.
Aussie production company Eureka is on a roll with another original show greenlit in the US.
HBO Max has ordered Full Bloom, an eight-episode, hour-long competition series featuring 10 of America’s budding florists vying to be crowned America’s best.
Promising incredible artistic creations and floristry face-offs, Full Bloom will see contestants design ‘Wonka-esque’ floral creations ever seen. The series is created and produced by Eureka Productions (The Amazing Race Australia, Holey Moley, Crikey It’s The Irwins, The Real Dirty Dancing, Drunk History) with Chris Culvenor, Paul Franklin and Wes Dening as executive producers.
Each episode features themed challenges centered around a unique stem of the floristry world including fashion, art, events and weddings. Contestants’ designs and creations will be mentored and judged by floristry artists Maurice Harris, Elizabeth Cronin with celebrity florist Simon Lycett (pictured) as host. At the end of the episode, flower arrangements will be given away.
“HBO Max along with the cast and crew of Full Bloom are committed to using all the fantastic creations from this series to brighten someone’s day. At the end of each episode, unsuspecting people will be surprised with a floral extravaganza that we hope inspires everyone to always find time to stop and smell the roses.”
“We are thrilled to be working with HBO Max and some of the best floristry artists in the world in this celebration of creativity, colour and competition” added Chris Culvenor, Co-CEO of Eureka productions. “It’s a series that lets imagination blossom.”
