Anatomy of a Sale: “DON’T LOOK BEHIND YOU” w/Kendrick Tan of Lit Entertainment Group (EXCLUSIVE)

Literary Manager Kendrick Tan of Lit Entertainment Group
The Tracking Board, in partnership with The Script Lab, is excited to present a new episode of ANATOMY OF A SALE.

We keep the frights and scares coming for October as we explore the sale of the Horror/Supernatural Spec ‘DON’T LOOK BEHIND YOU‘ with Literary Manager Kendrick Tan of Lit Entertainment Group. Written by scribes Joshua W. Wagner and Robert Lind, this spec would go on to launch both of their careers, secure them a place on the Hit List, and spark a massive bidding war between multiple buyers. The script is currently set up with eOne and Matt Jackson producing. Kendrick shows us his process to find new ideas with writers, figuring out the story within the story, and working through the territories between agent, manager, and attorneys.

Kendrick Tan is a literary manager at Lit Entertainment Group. He works closely with writers to help elevate and craft compelling worlds, and his skill is evident in the number of his clients landing on the Young & Hungry, Black List and Hit List year after year. He’s remains one of the industry’s leading managers, having been part of some of the biggest spec sales such as the Launch Pad scripts T and The Beast. His clients have been staffed on numerous shows including CBS’s Blood & Treasure and Seal Team, DirectTV’s Ice, and The CW’s The Outpost.

Anatomy of a Sale centers on the story behind the story, as in each episode we’ll hear from the industry’s top executives, representatives and writers chronicling their journey from the birth of a script to its eventual success. You’ll learn about the struggles of taking a project to market, the painstaking hours that go into breaking the narrative, the ups and downs of industry reception, and much more. So sit back, relax, and study the inner-workings of the Anatomy of a Sale.
