"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 July 22
With the Spring selling seasonbehind us and Summer in full-swing, you’d expect thespec market to be completelydead. That’s what happened last year, anyway; therewere zero spec sales in July 2010 and just one in August.But that’s so twelve months ago. As you can see from the grids on the next pages, thespec business is still going strong. In fact, July may well end up on par with April andMay’s numbers.2011’s sales numbers in general have been as strong as we’ve seen since the 2007WGA strike. Here’s a direct comparison of the year-over-year numbers for Januarythrough June:
Year200920102011
Total Specs300222194
Sales504247
Studio Purchases 27 16 31
As you can see, the studios’ collective appetite for specs (led by two studios inparticular) has grown dramatically this year. Here are our favorite highlights from the lastmonth:
After trailing
Columbia
since February,
Warner Bros.
has jumped to the top ofthe Buyers list, with 2 spec purchases each in June and July. Their total of 8 forthe year puts them just 1 shy of their 2010 tally and now 1 ahead of Columbiathis year.
The Burbank studio has bought 16 specs in the last 13 months;
 no other studio is even in the double digits over that span.
UTA
and
WME
are still tied for the lead among sellers, with 9 spec sales each,but expect a change by this time next month: UTA is entertaining offers for whatwill be its 10th sale of the year as of this writing, and third place
CAA’s
8th saleof the year happened after the cutoff for this report.The numbers for 2011 through July 22 are below. Enjoy.
