Congratulations to writer Mukilan Thangamani for the sale of his TB Recommended script DIVORCE PARTY! to Enderby Entertainment. Mukilan’s script, which received very high praise from our coverage department was the top recommended script in May 2012, and quickly built heat out of the gate by becoming the most requested script we’d recommended thus far. Now, one month later, we’d like to congratulate him on the sale, and upcoming successes on the horizon!
For our TB Recommends coverage division this now makes 5 for 5 in writers signing with reps, and 3 script sales.
The script, which is pitched as “Bridesmaids” meets “Love Actually” chronicles the intersecting arcs and misadventures of a group of friends attending a divorce party.
Here’s the breakdown on what our studio readers had to say:
DIVORCE PARTY is fantastic. In a script market constantly clogged with droves of questionable ‘edgy’ comedies, it stands out with fantastic dialogue, well fleshed-out characters, and hilariously original situations. Some scripts can succeed or fail based on the talent attached; the biggest strength of the script is that it will always stand out as a well written and hilarious comedy, even if it were made by a fifth grade talent show. DIVORCE PARTY easily showcases the writer’s talent for wordplay and comedy.
So how did it all begin…
Thangamani sent his script in for the TB Studio Coverage and received a “Recommend” from our readers, which led to the announcement in our May newsletter and a month later the sale of the script.
