Rainmaker Opening Television Division

Vancouver-based Rainmaker Entertainment is launching a television division. It will be named Mainframe Entertainment.

"We are excited to focus our television production activities under the Mainframe brand. We believe this announcement emphasizes Rainmaker's commitment to the production of animated programming for television," said Michael Hefferon, President and Executive Producer of Rainmaker.

Mainframe Entertainment was acquired from Starz Media in 2006 by Rainmaker Entertainment. Mainframe Entertainment was responsible for several seasons of ReBoot, as well as the  Transformers spin-off  Beast Wars. Other Mainframe credits include  Weird-Oh's, Spider-Man, Action Man, Heavy Gear, Max Steel, Scary Godmother and  Barbie.

In February, Rainmaker's first feature film, Escape From Planet Earth (distributed by The Weinstein Company), opened in North America. The studio is working on its second feature,  Ratchet and Clank, which is based on the popular Sony PlayStation game and is scheduled for 2015.
