EXCLUSIVE: Yotam Guendelman, Mika Timor and Ari Pines, the Israeli filmmakers behind Netflix’s true crime documentary Shadow of truth, have entered into a first agreement with Ample Entertainment.
It comes as the 9 months with Courteney Cox producer increases his list of premium documents. The company, which is doing a natural history project Kangaroos: Mala’s Story for Netflix, has series in the works with HBO, Adam McKay and Samuel L. Jackson.
He is now working on a list of original documents with Guendelman, Timor and Pines. The group will collaborate to develop and produce a host of films and series stranger than fiction in the unscripted space.
Guendelman, Timor and Pines, who recently finished producing a documentary for Showtime, have found success with Shadow of truth. The miniseries, which told the story of the 2006 murder of Tair Rada, a 13-year-old Israeli girl, became one of Netflix’s most-watched real-crime documentaries of 2018. They also worked on The coastal road killer, a serial killer documentary series exploring a series of murders in Israel in the 1970s and 1980s.
“Premium unscripted content is at the heart of the stories we tell, so we’re always looking for unique opportunities to elevate our non-fiction portfolio by working with the best talent in the industry,” said Ari Mark , co-founder of Ample Entertainment.
“Aligning with a company like Ample allows us the creative collaboration and critical infrastructure needed as we continue to tackle the characters and stories that matter and expand our international footprint,” the trio added.
