Tracey Scoffield joined the television industry as a trainee to William G. Stewart on light entertainment shows, and was associate producer of Jonathan Ross’ debut show The Last Resort for Channel 4, before moving into drama development and working for Colin Callender at the Callender Co. She then sidestepped the industry for eight years by joining publishing house Faber and Faber, where she ran the films and plays list, setting up the screenplay publishing initiative and working with directors such as Martin Scorsese and the late Louis Malle and Krzysztof Kieslowski. Ms. Scoffield then joined the BBC as a Script Editor, becoming Head of Development and Executive Producer for BBC Films. In the latter capacity, she has executive-produced Richard Loncraine’s award-winning The Gathering Storm (broadcast in the U.S. on HBO), Stephen Frears’ Dirty Pretty Things, Roger Michell’s The Mother, and Michael Winterbottom’s A Cock And Bull Story.
In 2005 she left the BBC to set up Rainmark Films, a television and film production company based in London, with producer Frank Doelger. In 2007, their production slate includes: Primo, A Number, My Zinc Bed, Churchill At War and The Other Man, a feature film to be directed by Richard Eyre.
