Spec Script Deal: “Body Cam”

Brian Robbins’ new production company acquires supernatural action spec script “Body Cam” written by Richmond Riedel. From Deadline:

The script developed a following this week and garnered three offers in a bidding situation, for a premise that is Get Out meets End of Watch. Here’s the logline: Several LAPD officers are haunted by a malevolent spirit that is tied to the murder of a black youth at the hands of two white cops… all of which was caught on a body cam video that was destroyed in a cover up.

Riedel is a ‘first-timer’. He is repped by Bellevue.

By my count, this is the 21st spec script deal in 2017.

There were 16 spec script deals year-to-date in 2016.

This represents a 24% increase in deals this year compared to last.
