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. Check out the newsletter's new-ish home on SpecScout.com.

The Scoggins Reportby Jason Scoggins & Landon RohwedderOctober 7, 2013
September 2013Spec Market Roundup
The word of the day is:
Two
.Three different buyers bought
two 
spec scripts each last month (
ElectricEntertainment
, big
Fox
and
Thunder Road
), and
two 
agencies sold
two 
each (
CAA
 and
Gersh
). Elsewhere,
WME
didn’t sell a spec in August or September, the first timethe agency notched zeroes
two 
months running since August/September 2010. Oh, andthere have been
two 
spec sales so far in October as well.Cute? Yes. Meaningful? Maybe not, but at minimum it’s nice to see a healthy number ofsales overall last month, not to mention the spec market ramping up in general. Ten newscripts hit the market last week, the highest weekly number in months.September’s raw numbers are below, followed by the usual weekly breakdowns and thedetails of each sale. Enjoy.
