Launched in 2014, Book Pipeline is the first competition specifically seeking new material for film and television adaptation. Book Pipeline actively develops writers worldwide and prepares their work for ongoing, widespread exposure to producers, agents, and other execs in need of projects for all markets, indie and studio. Previous winners include M Dressler’s acclaimed novel The Last to See Me, the true story of Crips founder Raymond Washington by Zach Fortier, and the award-winning play Application Pending from Andy Sandberg and Greg Edwards.
For 20 years, Script Pipeline has bridged the gap between up-and-coming writers and the industry through a unique, long-term, hands-on facilitation process. The result thus far has been $7 million in scripts sold to studios and networks since 1999. In total, across both Book and Script Pipeline, over 20,000 pieces of creative material are reviewed annually, with over 1,800 entries submitted to Book Pipeline in 2018.
