PanAfrican Studio Restless Global Adds Ambitious Crime Drama Series + Film on Kenyan Whistleblower to Slate (IndieWire)

“The title – ‘The Trade’ – is the essence of the series,” says Restless Global’s Marie Lora-Mungai. “Every action, relationship, decision and consequence is a trade, an exchange, a bargain, a negotiation, whether it is in the physical world or within the characters’ moral or spiritual selves.”

“’The Trade’ is our flagship project,” adds Tendeka Matatu. “A truly pan-African project that we believe has breakout potential.” 

And second, on the feature film front, an adaptation journalist and author Michela Wrong’s 2009 best seller “It’s Our Turn to Eat. The story of a Kenyan whistleblower," is in development under the title "State of Betrayal."
