Spec Scripts that Hit in August 2022
0

Between August 1st and August 31st, we tracked 17 new feature specs hot out of Final Draft. 3 of them have some type of attachment, while 1 is reported to have sold that was previously out in 2021 (more on that spec later). That brings our total count of specs with attachments up to 4. This marks a 23% decrease in specs from July, and a 26% drop off from June. How the year has been shaping up, August has turned over some fairly better numbers than anticipated.

0

Between July 1st and July 31st, we tracked 22 new feature specs hitting the market, with only 4 having some type of attachment. Surprisingly, this is only a 4.3% decrease in specs from June. June saw a monstrous uptick in specs from the rest of the year, so it looks like we’re holding steady for the summer. Still, July didn’t beat out the record high for the year but came quite close to it.
