AMPLE Entertainment Establishes Natural History Unit


AMPLE Entertainment is launching a dedicated Los Angeles-based natural-history division under the label AMPLE Nature.

Kylie Stott has been tapped to serve as VP of development for natural history. In her new role, she will spearhead development and production across a slate of natural history and wildlife programming. Stott has a track record of producing internationally acclaimed documentary programs such as David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef and Stephen Hawking’s Brave New World.

AMPLE Nature has already secured programming across multiple networks and platforms.

AMPLE co-founder Phil Lott said: “Producing powerful, blue-chip natural history programming has been a goal for us since we started AMPLE, and it’s a perfect progression for our brand because these shows deliver extraordinary production value, incredible stories, and the best in filmmaking.”

Ari Mark, co-founder, said: “Why does Bristol get to have all the fun? Also, I can’t think of a better time to avoid humans.”

Additionally, AMPLE is partnering with a variety of leaders in the space, including executive producer and BAFTA-winning cinematographer Sophie Darlington (Our Planet, Dynasties), writer David Fowler (Disney’s Born in China, Dolphin Reef), Emmy Award-winning underwater cinematographer Didier Noirot (Blue Planet), BAFTA- and Emmy-winning natural-history cinematographer John Shier (Hostile Planet) and multi-hyphenate creature artist David Krentz (Walking with Dinosaurs).

Mark and Lott added: “We know that to do this right, we need the best people. Between Kylie and the incredible team of experts she’s curated, we know we’re on that path.”
