Bristol-based Plimsoll Productions has upped Saul Goldberg to the position of senior vice president of production and development.

In the new role Goldberg (pictured), who has been leading Plimsoll’s U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles in a VP role, will continue to work with L.A.-based Plimsoll board member Mark Itkin to broaden the company’s North American footprint across all genres and connect talent to its portfolio of titles.

Goldberg joined the company in 2019 and has helped earn commissions for several unscripted series including On the Edge with Alex Honnold (National Geographic) and When Big Things Go Wrong (History), as well as unannounced projects starring A-list talent with Hulu, Disney+, Discovery+ and Peacock.

“A key member of Plimsoll’s creative leadership team, Saul has developed premium shows with top-tier talent to accelerate our U.S. expansion,” said Grant Mansfield, founder and CEO of Plimsoll Productions, in a statement. “He and Mark together make a winning combination, and I’m excited to harness their vision for further innovation and growth in the U.S.”

Among the titles Plimsoll has launched this year are The Women of 9/11 (ABC), Malika the Lion Queen (FOX) and a second season of Tiny World (Apple TV+).
