Tracey Edmonds Extra
Tracy’s meeting with Kenneth Edmonds in 1992 was a life-changing event for her.
Kenneth was an established name in the music industry and helped Tracey with ideas on how to set up a music-publishing company. The idea turned out to be a profitable venture as she started her company, ‘Yab Yum Entertainment.’
One of the very first artists who got signed under the label was Jon B. Soon. Sooner than later many more musicians joined in and the company became successful.
When she and Kenneth got married they became co-partners and run the company together. Tracy later desired film production and this led to the creation of the ‘Edmonds Entertainment Group’ in 1993.
The company was initially involved in many aspects of film production. Apart from being equipped with the brains to run a successful business, Tracey also had a good knowledge of the art of film making.
Her debut as a film producer was with the movie ‘Soul Food,’ in 1997. The film was a major commercial success. All the characters in the film were black.
It showed the African–American community in a good light. The film won highly positive reviews and many awards including the ‘NAACP Image Award’ for ‘Outstanding Motion Picture’ and the ‘Acapulco Black Film Festival’ award for the ‘Best Film.’
Motivated by the success of her debut film, Tracey produced another film, ‘Hav Plenty,’ which also featured an all-black cast.
The film was made on a tiny budget but managed to rake in more than 10 times its original budget.
In 1999, she got into commercial movie production with ‘Light It Up,’ whose budget exceeded her previous two films put together.
However, the film didn’t do well and was a financial disappointed. The film tackled the theme of racism but combined it with commercial elements.
In 2000, Tracy decided to enter into TV. Her film debut in TV was with ‘Soul Food: The Series,’ a family drama. When the film was released it became one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of all time.
It got many awards including the ‘NAACP Image Award’ for ‘Outstanding Drama Series’ in 2002 and the consecutive two years.
Thrilled with the success of her debut TV project, she produced two more TV series, ‘Maniac Magee’ and ‘College Hill.’ Both were critically and commercially successful.
In 2007, Tracey produced the film ‘Good Luck Chuck,’ which was her first feature film to have an all-white cast. The film had an interesting premise and was a box-office success. However, it was severely panned by critics due to its plot.
Tracey’s success as a film producer had her earning several major positions in organizations related to the American film industry.
She has served as a member of the board of governors of the ‘Producers Guild of America.’ She has also been a member of the board of trustees of the ‘American Film Institute.’
