TLC TAKES BALLOON ART TO NEW HEIGHTS WITH "THE UNPOPPABLES"
Premieres Monday, February 7 at 8/7c
(Los Angeles, CA) - Full-blown fun on TLC with THE UNPOPPABLES, a new six-part series following the innovative world of balloon art. Premiering Monday, February 7 at 8 PM (ET/PT), THE UNPOPPABLES follows Addi, Katie and Brian - the uniquely talented staff at New Balloon Art - as they twist and tie balloons of all colors, shapes and sizes into elaborate, large-scale creations.
In each half-hour episode, the team is commissioned to create an out of this world balloon installation for a special event or occasion. After meeting with the client to determine a theme, Addi, Katie and Brian get to work conceptualizing and creating - working with an average of 15,000 balloons to build a latex work of art in under 72 hours.
From a life-size fire truck for a firefighter museum to the first-ever balloon wedding, complete with balloon dress, balloon altar, and giant balloon cake, the dramatic pieces require intricate and extensive balloon work, as well as engineering know-how.
The New Balloon Artists are the best in the business, and with a lot of latex and a ton of imagination, you never know what they'll blow up next.
THE UNPOPPABLES is produced by Authentic Entertainment, an Endemol Company, for TLC. Executive producers for Authentic Entertainment are Tom Rogan and Lauren Lexton.
