Between September 1st and September 30th, we tracked 24 new feature specs hitting the market. However, of all this material only 4 have some type of attachment which we have tracked. Let’s not detract from the fact this is a 41.1% increase in material from last month. This marks the highest number of specs in a single month, beating out June which saw 23 new specs hit.
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.
Between June 1st and June 30th, we tracked 23 new feature specs hitting the market, with 6 having some type of attachment. However, one spec made waves that hit the market some time ago, bringing our total success up to 7 (more on that spec later). That is a 43.75% increase in specs from last month. Not only that, but this is the highest number of specs in a single month all year.
Between May 2022 and May 2021, there has been a 15.8% decrease in the material hitting the market. This gap has only continued to grow in past years. Dating at its peak, 2019 saw 33 specs out in a single month. Comparing that to now, that is nearly a 51.5% drop-off. While materials have decreased, the success rates have seen a bit more of a u-shape in the last few years.
March is usually the month we see the market start to defrost and kick into high gear. Instead, the month stayed on course and went out with the exact same about as February. Between March 1st and March 31st 2022, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs hitting the market. Of these specs, 5 have some type of attachment. So, we’re seeing an even split between February and March, but with the market primed, it plays like a smaller month than anticipated.
Between January 1st and January 31st, 2022, we tracked a total of 11 new feature specs hitting the market. Compared to last month, we are seeing a 15% decrease in the material out. That is fairly standard for the time of the year, thanks to the holidays. In terms of successes, of the 11 specs out, 4 have some type of attachment.
This is an incredible opportunity for someone who wants to learn how to become a manager on the lit track.
Between November 1st and November 30th, we tracked a total of 23 new feature specs out on the market. November tends to be a mixed bag year over year. This month traditionally marks the end of the literary calendar where most agents and managers are wrapping up going out with new material.

Between June 1st and June 30th, we tracked a total of 22 feature specs out. We’ve been coming from a steadily declining slump of material out, but June turned it around from May’s slow market. While not the highest number of features out this year, things are starting to mend.
