Kristen Dotto, formerly senior director of development at Maverick Television USA, has been tapped as VP of development at Stranded with a Million Dollars producer Tollbooth TV.

In the new role, Dotto (pictured) will be responsible for overseeing the Toluca Lake, Calif.-based prodco’s existing development slate. She will report directly into company founder and executive producer Kevin Lee.

Founded by Lee in 2007 after creating Spike’s non-fiction series Murder, Tollbooth is focused on creating high-concept formats and ensemble docuseries.

The company has also developed and produced a raft of content for such broadcasters as Spike TV, E!, VH1 and Food Network.
