Little Door Expands Executive Team


The Wales-based indie Little Door Productions has enlarged its female-led team with newly created roles for Bethan Jones (Playground) and Beth Grant (BBC).

Jones joins Little Door as executive producer and has worked on series and singles such as Hartswood’s Sherlock, War and Peace, Aberfan: The Green Hollow, Baker Boys, Pobol Y Cwm, Merlin, A Poet in New York, Under Milk Wood and Les Miserables with BBC Wales Drama and Lookout Point. Jones remains co-creative director of RED SEAM, which she co-founded in 2019, and will continue to develop their projects with Little Door’s support.

Grant joins Little Door as development executive, after having spent the last four years at the BBC. She has held the roles of development producer for BBC Writersroom Wales and both story editor and script editor on Casualty for BBC Studios. Before her time with the BBC, Grant held roles with Tidy Productions and Newman Street.

Jones said: “I’m very much looking forward to being back home [in Wales] and working with the brilliant team at Little Door.”

Grant commented: “I am delighted to be joining Little Door. Their bold vision and elegantly told stories mean their creative stamp is undeniable, and I am excited to be a part of this expanding team.”

Grant and Jones will work alongside CEO Elwen Rowlands and Head of Development Sam Costin, who joined Little Door from The Ink Factory in 2020.

Rowlands and Manning said: “When we founded Little Door Productions, we had a clear vision to build a creative and talented team that shared our values to produce stimulating drama with a twist and a Welsh flavor. To welcome Bethan and Beth to the team is fantastic—they are both hugely respected in their disciplines, and their wealth of experience will undoubtedly be etched in the future foundations of our television slate.”
