Script Pipeline discovers and develops writers for film and television, connecting them to producers, agents, and managers. Since 1999, several produced films and over $8 million in screenplay and TV pilot spec sales are credited to Script Pipeline’s unique, intensive process of long-term writer-to-industry facilitation.
Major and recent success stories include:
Tripper Clancy, winner of the Screenwriting Contest, found management with a Script Pipeline partner in 2010, and his career has since risen steadily. He sold a handful of specs and pitches and was hired to write several studio projects for Sony, Mandalay, and Amazon. His action-comedy Stuber, starring Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani, sold to Fox for the mid-six figures, he was staffed on the Netflix series I am Not Okay With This, and created the Roku series Die Hart.
Screenwriting Competition winner Evan Daugherty sold Snow White and the Huntsman to Universal for $3 million, one of the all-time biggest spec sales, and later wrote the studio films Divergent and Ninja Turtles. His contest-winning script Killing Season was produced and starred Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro.
Years later, another historic spec sale followed from an unproduced writer: Screenwriting finalist Crosby Selander sold his script Bring Me Back to Legendary for seven figures. Crosby was signed by Kaplan/Perrone following Pipeline circulation.
In the past few years, Script Pipeline introductions have resulted in several writers landing management and agency rep with UTA, Zero Gravity, Kaplan/Perrone, and more. Both 2021 winners—Erin Muroski for TV Writing and Daniel Jackson for Screenwriting—signed with reps at Bellevue. Daniel (Cauliflower) and First Look Project winner Brian T. Arnold (In the End) made the 2021 Black List, with Cauliflower garnering the #1 spot.
With a constantly expanding industry network, Script Pipeline searches for new material and writers on a daily basis. Over 25,000 screenplays, pilots, and original pitches were reviewed in 2021.
