Mansfield's news arrives on heels of Zodiak USA rebranding as Zodiak Los Angeles

Grant Mansfield, the former CEO of Zodiak USA, has forged a new production company focused on reality and wildlife programming for the U.K. and United States.

Plimsoll Prods. will be based in Bristol and London, with Mansfield serving as the chief of the company. Flying under him are executives including Gavin Henderson (creative director), Martha Holmes (exec producer, wildlife), Kate Beetham (exec producer, factual) and Christine Owen (managing director).

“Between us, the Plimsoll team has a long track record for producing a raft of international hit series in the non-scripted space,” Mansfield said. “Working with our broadcast partners on both sides of the Atlantic, we’re confident that there are plenty more to come.”

Mansfield boasts a thirty-year history in unscripted programming, and during his tenure at Zodiak he executive produced shows including “Secret Millionaire,” “Celebrity Wife Swap,” “Hardcore Pawn” and “Killer Karaoke.”
