The ATS Team has announced the launch of its new original content production arm, ATS Originals and full production services arm ATS Productions.
Prioritizing challenge and game show formats, along with travel docuseries and dating show content, ATS Originals will focus on creating original, non-scripted formats for networks and broadcasters around the world. Its development slate already includes multiple concepts such as Million Dollar Fail, a unique Wipeout style competition and Brain Vs Body, a partnership with Mark Wahlberg’s production company Unrealistic Ideas.
VP of Development & Production, Mike Woodward will lead the new division from the US overseeing a UK team, which is piloted by Development and Production Executive, Shayna Waldman.
In addition to the launch of ATS Originals, the company has also created ATS Productions, a division which will handle every stage of its upcoming projects, from casting in pre-production to post-production, as seen on the company’s recently released co-blended marketing and competition series, Clash of Trades. ATS Productions will also house its line production services, which has successfully completed 3 major productions internationally including multiple seasons of the hit global competition show, The Bridge and will continue to provide this service to channels, networks and other production companies on non-scripted formats, specials and series.
ATS Productions will be jointly led by The ATS Team’s Managing Director & EVP Production, Danny Sanz, with the North American arm led by Mike Woodward.
