Big News from The Black List

All unproduced writers dream of their script making the prestigious annual list, The Black List, and now writers from Iowa to Europe have a chance. The Black List founder Franklin Leonard and co- founder/CTO Dino Sijamic announced today the launch of a paid service that allows any screenwriter, amateur or professional, to upload their script to The Black List’s database, have it evaluated by professional script readers, and depending on its evaluation(s), have it read by as many as 1,000 film industry professionals currently a part of its membership site.

Breaking in outside of Hollywood is now truly possible.

  1. The Black List is a survey published every year on the second Friday of December since 2004 by Franklin Leonard, a development executive who as of 2012 works for Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment. The survey includes the top motion picture screenplays not yet produced. The website states that these are not necessarily "the best" screenplays, but rather "the most liked", since it is based on a survey of studio and production company executives.
