Executive producer Mary Burke, an alum of the BFI Film Fund and Warp Films, has set up the new production company Public Dreams.

Having spent five years as senior executive at the BFI Film Fund and 13 years at Warp Films, Burke’s credits include Submarine, Saint Maud, Phantom of the Open, Brian and Charles, Colette, Ammonite and God’s Own Country, among others. She has won four BAFTA and BIFA awards.

Public Dreams’ initial development slate includes Targets, a radical returnable drama series blending comedy-horror and political drama from writer/director Amrou Al-Kadhi for BBC Drama, and an option on Kate Davies’ award-winning debut novel In at the Deep End.

Burke said: “Public Dreams is an extension of more than 20 years of producing by bringing my most cherished talent relationships under one roof, no holds barred. We aim to deliver entertaining, cinematic and ambitious stories with integrity for domestic and international audiences alike.”

She added: “Public Dreams has already hit the ground running with a strong development slate and a couple of solid book options, so it’s an incredibly exciting time for us.”
