"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 Pitch Sales Scorecardthrough April 14, 2011
And now for something completely different... In honor of the second anniversary ofThe Scoggins Reportand to celebrate today
ʼ
s launch of the completely redesignedItsontheGrid.com, I decided to take a break from obsessing over the spec market andthink about something even more tantalizing:
Pitch Sales
. Because after all, there arefew things sweeter than being paid a small fortune
before 
putting pen to paper.Since I was buried ina huge pile ofHTML all week, the lovely and talented Cindy Kaplan saved my bacon despite Passover by pulling all of the below info together andlaying it out here, Spec Market Scorecard-style. (All together now: Thanks, Cindy!)Here are my favorite highlights:
Paramount
hasn
ʼ
t bought any specs yet this year, but has bought the mostpitches by far of the studios (4)
There was a three-way tie amongst the agencies for most sold specs as of mid-March (
CAA
,
UTA
and
WME
), but
CAA
is absolutely dominant so far this year inpitch sales (6).As you go through the below grids, keep in mind that no one has comprehensive dataon how many pitches actually make the rounds every year. They tend to stay on theDL even when they sell unless they have a splashy attachment. All of the below are justthe projects that we
ʼ
ve heard or read about so far this year.
