The Scoggins Report is a terribly unscientific analysis of the feature film development business based on information assembled from a variety of public and non-public sources. The numbers in the reports are by no means official statistics. Caveat emptor. Molṑn labé.

2012 Spec Market Scorecardas of December 17, 2012
Congratulations to all the writers and reps whose material made it onto the 2012Black List and Hit List!
Both lists dropped over the past couple of days and we’vebeen feverishly cross-referencing our grids against them ever since. We’ve also goneback through and double-checked all of our various year-to-date tallies, and their arechanges throughout this week’s updated Spec Market Scorecard.We still have some research to do on a dozen or so Black List scripts, but all of the HitList’s scripts are now represented in our numbers.
So far, we’ve added 14 scripts thatwere on the DL over the past twelve months, including 4 spec sales that hadn’tpreviously been reported
.Like last year, we’re going to hold off doing year-end analyses and assembling Top 5Buyers and Sellers lists until after the holidays.
With the exception of the #1 MP LitAgency (it’s WME, by a mile), each of the other positions on those lists couldchange with a couple of spec sales
, and there are always a couple of salesannouncements in the few days following the release of the Black List.We’re planning to go ahead and publish during each of the next two weeks, but as aconcession to the way the holidays fall this year we’ll probably do so on Wednesday orThursday instead of Monday. For now, enjoy the nearly-complete year-to-date numberson the grids below, and merry Christmas, whether you celebrate it or not.
