Grant Mansfield Launches U.K.-Based Plimsoll Productions

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).
