Between May 1st and May 31st, we tracked 1 spec script and 1 book rights being taken out.  This is a considerable drop from last month as well as compared to the same time last year, when we followed 16 specs going out on the town.

Between April 1st and April 30th, 2023, we tracked a total of 8 feature specs hitting the market or being sold, highlighting a 47% decrease in specs we followed compared to last month, due primarily to the impending writers’ strike. Of these 8 feature specs, 5 had some type of attachment.

Between March 1st and March 31st, 2023, we tracked a total of 15 feature & TV specs hitting the market, highlighting a 12% decrease in specs hitting the market compared to February 2023.

Between December 1st and December 31st, we tracked a total of 10 new feature specs on the market. This marks the lowest volume of specs out in a single month, and if that surprises you, you probably thought “Puss in Boots” would beat “Avatar” at the box office.

Between October 1st and October 31st, we tracked a total of 23 new feature specs hitting the market. It makes a tie for second-most specs out in a single month, matching June, and just one spec shy from first place. That title still belongs to September. As such, it makes a 4.1% decrease in specs from last month. Of the 23 new feature specs, only 4 have some type of attachment that we’ve tracked.

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 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.
