October 2013Pitch Market Scorecard
A couple of weeks ago in the September Pitch Roundup, we noted there had been threemonths in a row of as-good-or-better year-over-year pitch sales numbers. Make that“four months in a row” --
October’s only half over, but it’s already tied with last year
(in addition to the 4 noted in the grid below, we captured two additional pitch sales aftertoday’s cutoff).If the rest of October is as strong and November follows suit we’ll still have a chance ofmatching last year’s numbers (which were admittedly pretty weak compared to 2011’s).The biggest targets of opportunity are unchanged from those we’ve noted over the pastcouple of months:•
, which picked up its second pitch of the year recently but is nowhere nearthe 9 it purchased in each of the last two years;•
, which bought its third pitch last month but must have a few developmentdollars stashed away since it hasn’t purchased a single spec script all year; and•
, for almost the exact same reason (it’s bought 3 pitches and 1 specso far this year, compared to a combined 20 and 17 projects in 2012 and 2011,respectively).As always, year-over-year numbers to your heart’s content are below. Enjoy.
