UK indie Plimsoll Productions is planning to launch a West Coast office this spring, based in Santa Monica.
CEO Grant Mansfield (pictured) and exec VP of international production Andrew Jackson will oversee the office from abroad, in a bid to expand the company’s reach into reality, wildlife and adventure programming in the U.S.
“It’s a producer’s dream to create programming on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Mansfield. “And, the big social change in modern family life in both the U.S. and UK is multi-generational living. Through drama and humor, Big Family Mansion is a brand new reality format that provides a hugely entertaining window on the ups and downs of buying a home with your extended family.”
