Los Angeles prodco Ample Entertainment is ramping up its true crime business with the launch of a dedicated division and the appointment of veteran true crime producer Tammy Wood.

Wood (pictured) will become SVP of true crime programming and reports directly to co-presidents Ari Mark and Phil Lott.

She will oversee a slate of series that include the third season of Murder in the Heartland and a second season of The Night that Didn’t End, both for Investigation Discovery (ID).

In her more than 15 year career, Wood has produced for channels and production companies in the U.S. and UK, including All3Media, 44 Blue Productions, Intuitive, ID, TLC, Animal Planet, CMT, Bio and more. Her credits include four seasons of Betrayed (ID), two seasons of both Twisted Sisters (ID) and Tabloid (ID), Model Killers (Bio), My Evil Sister (Bio) and I Still Didn’t Know (TLC), among others.

“As we rapidly expand our true crime portfolio, we could not think of anyone more suited than Tammy to lead the charge. Tammy’s production and post-production experience is simply unmatched in the genre. Her ability to craft story, her leadership skills, and her commitment to quality makes her the perfect fit for this new role,” Mark and Lott said in a statement.

Ample Entertainment has a production slate of nearly 70 hours of programming that includes 9 Months with Courtney Cox (Facebook), The Lost Gold of World War II (History) and Could You Survive the Movies (YouTube), among other commissions and documentaries currently in production.

Most recently, the prodco premiered its two-hour film The Lost Women of NXIVM (ID) and its reboot of Cold Case Files (Netflix).
