"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.

March 2011 Spec Market Roundup
Those aren’t typos below - March was a monster month in the spec market:
16 specsales and a 39% sales rate are by far 
 
the highest monthly figures since the2007-2008 WGA strike
. The next two highest months were April 2010 (13) andFebruary 2009 (12). Every studio except Disney and Warner Bros. came on strong(
Columbia
bought three specs and
Universal
and
Fox
bought two each) and eightnon-studio buyers got into the game as well, notably
Mandate
and
Montecito
.The major agencies dominated the marketplace:
UTA
absolutely crushed it, with 5sales, followed by
CAA
and
ICM
with three each. UTA’s
Julien Thuan
and ICM’s
Adam Weinstein
each had great months individually, with two sales each. Elsewhere,
H2F
’s
Chris Fenton
continued his hot streak with two sales in March, for a total of threeso far in 2011.Congratulations, everyone. Here are March’s raw numbers:
