There’s a hot new spec on the market, and it’s already gaining tons of traction as it starts to spread like wildfire. Written by newcomer David Granger, EMBASSY marks the arrival of a talented new voice in the action – thriller space. Granger is repped by Paradigm’s Christopher Smith and David Boxerbaum and Benderspink’s Scott Stoops. John Zaozirny is attached to produce via his Bellevue Productions banner.
The story details are being kept under wraps, but sources close to The Tracking Board confirm that the spec is a contained action – thriller, being pitched in the vein of Argo meets Bourne. We’re hearing this has serious franchise potential, which is one of many reasons the spec already has some major players swarming.
Granger was a 2014 Humanitas Finalist and was the 2014 NATO of California/Nevada Fellow. He’s been quarterfinalist in the BlueCat Screenwriting Competition, a Semi-Finalist in the PAGE Screenwriting Awards, and was a Samuel Goldwyn Awards Semi-Finalist in 2013.
Things are really starting to heat up around Embassy. We’re hearing that this went into the first round of territories before lunch on Wednesday, with more soon to come. We’ll keep you posted as the information rolls in…
