Lee brings a creative instinct for finding stories that have led the network to ratings success. His forte is discovering unique and compelling content and shaping it in ways that capture both pop culture awareness and the fascination of TLC’s audience. His ability to identify and draw story arcs has led the network to continue with multiple seasons for some of its most talked about and recognizable series. Lee and his team’s hard work led Q1 2017 to be TLC’s highest-rated quarter in primetime in two years with W25-54 and W18-49. The network is up nearly 20% in primetime from last year. Although he maintains a diverse group of individuals on his teams, Lee notes, “There is still not enough diversity behind the scenes.”
