Script Pipeline develops writers for film and television, connecting them with top producers, agents, and managers. This process has thus far resulted in over $5 million in writer spec sales and several produced films.
For over 15 years, the company has bridged the gap between up-and-coming writers and influential executives. Through services, research tools, the exclusive Secret Door Pitchfest, and annual writing and idea contests, Script Pipeline continues to offer writers worldwide unprecedented access to the industry.
Recent success stories include Script Pipeline contest-winner Evan Daugherty selling Snow White and the Huntsman to Universal for $3 million and later taking the lead on studio projects Divergent, Ninja Turtles, and GI Joe 3, as well as writing a limited series Esmeralda for ABC Studios. His contest-winning script Killing Season (formerly Shrapnel) was produced and premiered in 2013 starring Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro and John Travolta.
Micah Barnett, a Workshop “Recommend,” sold The Rabbit to Warner Bros. for six-figures and a TV pilot, Ricochet, to NBC in 2013. That same year, Tripper Clancy, another former screenwriting contest winner, sold the road comedy The Ambassadors to 20th Century Fox and the pitch Winter Break to QED International. Tripper is currently writing the animated comedy Shedd for Paramount and the adventure/comedy Stranded for Sony Pictures, with Kevin James (Grown Ups, The King of Queens) attached to star.
The Living Wake, Script Pipeline's first produced film starring Academy Award-nominee Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), premiered in 2010. Operation Endgame, based on Brian Watanabe’s original script Rogue’s Gallery, a Script Pipeline “Recommend,” was released in 2010 and starred Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Adam Scott (Parks and Rec), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Maggie Q, Ellen Barkin, Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul), and an ensemble cast.
Currently, many other studio-level, indie, and original feature and TV projects are in various stages of development. As of 2015, the company reviews approximately 8,000 screenplays, pilots, and original pitches on average each year, making Script Pipeline one of the industry’s leading outlets for new writers.
