"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. Details on every person, project and company covered by the Report can also be found at www.ItsontheGrid.com, the only place mere mortals can find listings of Hollywood’s active open writing and directing assignments, not to mention comprehensive spec market data and active film development information.

2011 Spec Market Scorecardas of March 18
We
ʼ
re at the midpoint of 2011
ʻ
s spring selling season and green shoots just keeppopping up all over the place. Here are the juiciest tidbits about the past month
ʼ
s specmarket:• No fewer than
seven studios bought specs since the last scorecard
(!), five ofwhich hadn
ʼ
t gotten on the board yet this year:
Disney
,
DreamWorks
,
Fox
,
Summit
and
Universal
.
Columbia Pictures
leapfrogged
Warner Bros.
in the last couple of weeks to takethe lead for most spec purchases so far in 2011 (3, to WB
ʼ
s 2). That pace is closerto their 2009 numbers (5) than last year
ʼ
s (1).
Gersh
has the best record among the agencies so far: They
ʼ
re tied with
CAA
and
WME
for the most spec sales (4), but on fewer attempts, so their efficiency rating isall the way up at 67%. Last year, the top three at this point in the season wereAPA and ICM (3 sales each) and UTA (2).And here
ʼ
s one more, slightly off-topic but just as encouraging as the above: In additionto the ten specs the studios have have bought so far this year,
they
ʼ
ve also bought 10pitches
. If you add those to the mix, Columbia
ʼ
s still in the lead with four new projects,but Fox and Universal would also be ahead of Warner Bros., with three each.
