Plimsoll hires for US office

Plimsoll Productions, the UK-based factual indie behind National Geographic’s Yellowstone Live series, has expanded further into the US by hiring an experienced exec to run its LA office.

Saul Goldberg

Saul Goldberg is joining Plimsoll as VP of development and production, overseeing the company’s US slate of factual entertainment and documentaries.

Plimsoll’s recent successes include the second season of Yellowstone Live and the Emmy-nominated Hostile Planet.

Goldberg will work closely with Plimsoll head of factual entertainment Karen Plumb, head of documentaries Richard Klein and president of international production and development Andrew Jackson.

Most recently, Goldberg served as head of unscripted TV at film finance company Covert Media (formerly QED International), where he created and sold two original docuseries to Viceland and developed innovative distribution strategies for a diverse slate of projects.

Prior to that, Goldberg developed and sold prank show Fameless with David Spade to US cablenet TruTV, which he oversaw for Entertainment One. He began his career as an agent trainee at WME and later became director of development alongside Ben Silverman at Electus, where he developed series including Candid Camera (TV Land) and Wake Up Call (TNT).

The news follows Plimsoll’s recent partnership with Lloyds Development Capital, a deal valuing the company at £80m (US$96m).
