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 and John Travolta.
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 after Pipeline circulation.
In the past few years, Script Pipeline introductions have resulted in several writers landing management and agency rep at UTA, Zero Gravity, Kaplan/Perrone, Bellevue, and more. Winners Daniel Jackson (Cauliflower) and Brian T. Arnold (In the End) also made the 2021 Black List, with Cauliflower garnering the #1 spot.
Script Pipeline searches for new material and develops writers on a daily basis. Over 20,000 screenplays, pilots, and original pitches are expected for 2022.
