The Tracking Board, in partnership with The Script Lab, is excited to present a new episode of ANATOMY OF A SALE.
Kendrick Tan of Lit Entertainment Group joins us once again and breaks down the emotionally charged story of Godwin Jabangwe and his pitch TUNGA. The animated musical would go on to spark an incredible bidding war between four separate studios, ultimately landing at Netflix for six-figures in Jabangwe’s first sale. The project was a part of the inaugural Imagine Impact program, founded by Imagine Entertainment’s Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. Kendrick recounts what it was like meeting Jabangwe for the first time, championing him to explore a personal side to the story, and finding the meaning behind the narrative.
