Spec Script Deal: “Unfit”
Amazon Studios acquires historical drama spec script “Unfit” written by Melissa London Hilfers. From Deadline:
This is the shocking true story of Carrie Buck, a young Virginia woman who became a lightning rod for that movement and was forced to singlehandedly fight against it for the one thing she desperately wanted — to be a mother.
Deal was the result of a bidding war for mid-six figures.
Hilfers is repped by Paradigm and Alan Gasmer
By my count, this is the 5th spec script deal of 2017
There was 1 spec script deal year-to-date in 2016.
