Quibi continues its recent run on original programming with a series order for Centerpiece, a floral-arrangement docuseries led by floral artist Maurice Harris from executive producers Rashida Jones and Will McCormack.
Peter Kline, John Kaplan and Harris also are EPs on the show, which explores the nature of creativity through the process of flower design. Each episode will see Harris go on a creative journey with a celebrity guest exploring who they are to create a mind-blowing floral centerpiece.
Los Angeles-based Harris — who co-created the series with Kline — is behind Bloom & Plume, a bespoke floral design studio in Echo Park. His unique point of view, sense of humor and craftsmanship has made him both one of the most sought-after floral designers in L.A. and one of the most followed florists on Instagram. His clients include some of Hollywood’s biggest names as well as such top-tier brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dior, Nike, Gucci, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, MOCA and LACMA.
Centerpiece is produced by Alldayeveryday, Le Train Train and Bloom & Plume.
