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.

The Scoggins Reportby Jason Scoggins & Cindy KaplanMarch 18, 2013
March 2013Spec Market Scorecard
It’s nice to be able to open with unqualified good news this week:
Last week’s flurry ofspec script sales finally put the 2013 spec market on par with 2012’s
, and totalspec sales for the year are finally ahead of total pitch sales as well. Still, the rollingshortage of new material on the market that started in February will continue to have animpact through at least the end of March.The impact of that shortage is most vividly seen in the Buyers grids, below:Three of the six major studios still haven’t bought a spec in 2013 (
Columbia
,
Fox
 and
Warner Bros.
).Only 5 Studio Buyers (the majors, their labels and the mini-majors) have boughtspecs so far this year, compared to 12 through the end of March 2012.Only 13 Other Buyers have bought specs so far this year, compared to 22through the end of March 2012.Go big or go home, Hollywood. And enjoy the grids.
