Rainmaker Pictures is the production label of Dominic Barlow. Producer of shows including Mr Selfridge, The Last Kingdom, Inspector George Gently, and Exec producer of shows like Garrow’s Law and The Mill.

Mark is a producer and writer and has worked with Dominic for the last 10 years. His big break came when he unearthed the barrister William Garrow, and devised Garrow’s Law, the period legal drama that ran for three series on BBC1.

He has since written for The Revolution will Be Televised (BBC3), and the Tales of Peter Rabbit (CBeebies). He has several TV dramas in development and a romantic comedy screenplay that is – finger crossed – shooting in 2016.

Dominic and Mark are on the look out for dramas that give us a fresh take on an issue or a world.  It could be period, it could be contemporary but it must be distinctive.
