MONTH ONE!

IN ONE MONTH,

1115 SCREENPLAYS WERE UPLOADED TO THE BLACK LIST WEBSITE! FROM 21 COUNTRIES AND 41 STATES.!

I submitted MCCARTHY to the Black List site out of sheer curiosity, and entered the process with absolutely no expectations. The script had been completed for some time, and was collecting dust in a drawer. The response I've received has been truly incredible. None of this would be possible without the Black List site. The avenue it has provided has been invaluable, and one that I expect to breed many success stories.! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! – Justin Kremer, newly signed to CAA!

We uploaded MARGARITA NIGHT …, and after a couple of good reviews we found ourselves on the Top Scripts page. Our impressions skyrocketed and we're pleased to report that we've been contacted by two production companies and a manager… we're already planning a trip out to L.A. in the near future to meet with some of our new contacts. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! – Steve Macarelli, Billy Lalor !

MOST DOWNLOADED SCRIPTS! MCCARTHY by Justin Kremer (Drama)! It is 1951. Junior Senator Joe McCarthy feels lost. He's anonymous, just another suit on Capitol Hill. He craves attention and celebrity. He's desperate to be noticed, to be adored. Inspired by the response of the American public to the House of Un-American Activities Committee, McCarthy decides that communism will be his defining issue. What follows is nearly unthinkable -- national fame, a shocking conspiracy, a sitting President afraid to oppose him, and a torrid journey of self destruction and paranoia.!

THE PALLBEARERS by Jeffrey J Marks (Drama, Western)! A cowboy's life is remembered by the six men who carry his coffin, one of whom is his killer. A story of betrayal, greed, and love. Silas Jackson survives the Civil War, the Panic of 1873 and the Montana Territorial Prison only to lose his family to his best friend. With eerie similarities to modern day America, THE PALLBEARERS is a cautionary tale that holds a mirror up to our own flaws. It makes us wonder if we too are facing our own demise; and begs the question, why haven't we learned from our mistakes?!

THE ICE POND by Nicole Avenia (Thriller)! When a reclusive teenager and her estranged parents embark on an ice fishing trip in northern Canada, things quickly turn perilous when they become stranded on the ice and realize someone--or something--is stalking them.
