Black Sands Entertainment & Composition Media to Adapt “Black Sands: The Seven Kingdoms” for TV

*Black Sands Entertainment, the leading Black comic book publisher, and Carl Reed’s Composition Media are proud to announce a multi-million dollar anime production deal to set a new standard for high-quality content that celebrates African heritage and empowers Black youth. The first collaborative project between the two companies includes an adaptation of the comic “Black Sands: The Seven Kingdoms” into a culturally-rich anime TV series.

“Black Sands: The Seven Kingdoms” is a geopolitical story that follows a young boy named Ausar whose life goal is to rule Kemet. This goal leads him on a journey to far-off lands in the ancient world. He deals with the complicated issues involving wars and ancient gods that seek his death. He is accompanied by his kinfolk Seth, Auset, and Nehbet as they travel the world.

Founded by the dynamic Army veterans Manuel and Geiszel Godoy, Black Sands Entertainment has been steadfast in its commitment to publishing content that caters to Black families. The duo secured investment from Kevin Hart and Mark Cuban after appearing on the acclaimed entrepreneurial show “Shark Tank.” The partnership with Composition Media marks the publishing company’s first foray into the anime space.

Carl Reed, producer of the Academy® Award-winning short “Hair Love,” launched Composition Media earlier this year as a diverse and forward-thinking animation studio. Composition Media is also developing the 2D animated adult-comedy “Bad Grandmas,” a feature film co-produced alongside Steve Harvey’s East 112; “Sky & Luna,” the first movie in an eight-picture slate partnership with Labid Aziz’s PoC Studios and Man of Action Entertainment; and “Catapult Feud,” a TV series based on the critically acclaimed board game of the same name.

“We’re deeply honored to collaborate with Black Sands Entertainment on such a groundbreaking project,” said Reed. “We have an unparalleled opportunity to breathe life into beloved comic stories through the medium of anime, connecting youth with characters and narratives to which they can relate. This venture extends beyond mere entertainment—it’s about affirming identity and igniting ambition in a generation that rightfully deserves to see themselves portrayed heroically on screen.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Carl Reed and Composition Media to help us reach a much larger audience and bring our Black Sands comic books to life through Anime,” said Manuel Godoy, Chief Executive Officer of Black Sands Entertainment. “This is a major milestone for our company as this partnership will enable us to further fulfill our dream of showing the rich history of our people before slavery, a topic hardly ever mentioned in entertainment today.”

The partnership between Black Sands Entertainment and Composition Media is historic in that it allows creators control over the property along with mutual collaboration during production. It will leverage the strengths of both companies, combining the creative vision and storytelling prowess of Black Sands Entertainment with Composition Media’s imaginative and artistic expertise in anime production.
