Barbara Jane Mackie
‘RUMPY PUMPY!’ is Barbara’s first Musical.
Barbara’s screenplay, ‘COWBOY GIRLS’, a Western set in the 1880’s, gained support from Anthony Minghella and her first screenplay ‘MIMI’ brought her to the attention of Working Title Films.
Producing many documentaries for the BBC and Channel 4, Barbara, as Script Editor at BBC Birmingham Drama, developed the film ‘BAD COMPANY’, the medical police drama series ‘DANGERFIELD’ and ‘DALZIEL & PASCOE’ the much loved Detective series.
She produced the film ‘SEED’ for BBC 2. Barbara has lectured in screenwriting at Portsmouth and Southampton (Solent) Universities and now lives in Ryde, Isle of Wight. She began her career in the Fringe Theatre working with comedians Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson.
