‘Tis the season when end-of-year screenplay lists are announced! Today The Black List 2020 was announced via Deadline, and the team at Coverfly has prepared an interactive presentation of the data for you to explore. 

What’s special about Coverfly’s presentation of The Black List 2020?

Coverfly uniquely aggregates data from all of the industry’s top surveys, lists, talent-discovery programs and fellowships, to help executives quickly identify rising talent and projects.

For instance, exclusively via Coverfly you can see that this year’s Black List writer Chaz Hawkins (THE SAUCE) was a Final Draft Big Break competition finalist and was selected back in July for Coverfly’s Endorsed Writers Program. We covered the writer’s meteoric rise here. Congrats to Chaz on making it onto this year’s Black List!

Another example: you can see that this year’s Black List project, GOOD CHANCE by Tricia Lee, was selected as a semifinalist in the Nicholl Fellowship 2020. It also won WeScreenplay’s Diverse Voices competition in 2020 and the writer participated in Coverfly’s Pitch Week Fall 2020.

In all, more than 20 writers on this year’s The Black List have Coverfly accounts with lots of data for you to uncover insights like the above on rising talented writers.
