Default Spec City

Great resource, if you scroll down you will find 2008- 2018 spec sales broken down by categories.

I think he even goes back to 1991 if you search, but that is probably too far for people looking to get a sense of what sells and who is repping them...

this is depressing.

in 2018 only 40 specs? the lowest in 27 years.

i read The Beast-- a 2018 Black List spec. pretty good, even if logic doesn't measure up.

3 home invasion, two happen during an alien invasion.

And it's currently at 21-22 spec deals in 2019.
I'd be surprised if even 40 deals can be made by the end of this year.

Cheer up everyone -- this doesn't include all those other deals with Netflix etc that we don't have a chance of getting w/o a spec sale!

But seriously -- there are other deals that happen -- this is spec sales. But there are options and they read your sample, why don't you rewrite this script FOR FREE.

So let's not focus too hard on those exciting numbers because they don't tell the whole story!

Right? Right??

People always asking "What are you writing now?"

And my answer is always "My suicide note."

I think that sums me up.
