From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Andrew Rattenbury is a British television screenwriter and playwright who has written for several television programmes including Absolute Power, Monarch of the Glen and Casualty.[1]

Early Life[edit]

Rattenbury grew up in Lyme Regis, and went to Woodroffe School. He also played for Lyme Regis Football Club.[2]

Career[edit]

Rattenbury began as an actor in bit parts in the 1990s, before transitioning into screenwriting. Since then, he has written for popular British series like medical dramas Holby City and Peak Practice, science-fiction series Primeval, the comedy Teachers, and Eastenders. He also worked on the NBC adventure series Crusoe, based on the Daniel Defoe novel. Crusoe was initially promoted as a regular TV show but, after the first few episodes aired (with poor ratings), the network listed it as a "high-action, fast-paced, thirteen-part series." NBC has no plans to renew Crusoe.[3]

He also wrote the play The Slanting Rain, based on the life of Russian poet Vladamir Mayskoskvy, and stage adaptations of The Postman Always Rings Twice and Return of The Native
