Following up on his Top 50 placement in the 2018 Launch Pad Features Competition as well as his selection to the HBO Access Writing Fellowship last month, Ivan Tsang has signed with Jermaine Johnson and Luke Maxwell of 3 Arts Entertainment.
Tsang’s Launch Pad script FINDING CUMBERBATCH is a hilarious and over-the-top ride following a Benedict Cumberbatch superfan who accidentally destroys the actor’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds and wakes up to discover his entire career has been wiped from existence. The subsequent struggle to right her wrong and make Cumberbatch a star once again was described by our readers as a comedy that “will have you rolling on the floor laughing with its harsh commentary on celebrity, fan culture and Hollywood” while maintaining “an emotional core and relatable, flawed characters.”
Tsang is a native of Toronto, Canada who received an MFA in Screen and TV Writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Shorts and sketches he’s written for Wong Fu Productions, KevJumba, Jubilee Media, Jeremy Lin, ISA TV and others have been viewed over 100 million times.
