International digital content studio and broadcaster Little Dot Studios (LDS) is ramping up production on long-form documentaries and unscripted series for U.S. networks with the appointment of Paul Woolf as head of U.S. unscripted development.

Woolf (pictured) has more than 20 years of experience developing series for TV networks and digital channels, and was most recently head of development at Barcroft Productions, where he helped create Amazing Interiors for Netflix, specials for Channel 4 and Animal Planet, and short-form projects for A+E Networks UK and Bancroft’s digital platforms.

Before that, he developed series at Maverick TV, including Bizarre ER and Operation Ouch. He also created BBC2′s social experiment format Old School, co-developed ITV’s Billy Connolly’s Route 66 and BBC4′s feature Sectioned, and served as an EP on the feature Growing Up Down’s.

Among the projects being developed at LDS is a long-form version of the company’s ‘Real Stories Original’ videos, currently available on the Real Stories online hub and across YouTube, Facebook Watch, Amazon and Roku. The collection is overseen by executive editor Alex Hryniewicz.

Since 2017, LDS has commissioned new Real Stories Originals, which act as pilots or proof of concepts for bigger projects to be sold to networks and platforms. The projects are commissioned by Adam Gee.
