Hollywood script showcase finds truth of diversity pivot

(Premium content) Premium content

Franklin Leonard, creator of The Black List script tool, talks diversity and fake woke in the script development process with Benjamin Law.

The Black List is almost a legend, a bringer of fortune – though really, it's no more than a clever mechanism which depends on the internet. The List enables screenwriters to claim attention for their own scripts, and an international (but primarily US-based) community has formed around it, by which working executives can read unproduced scripts, and vote on them. The most liked are published in a list; writers are advised to secure paid script coverage as part of the package. The site has a blog, educational resources and records of partnerships including New Zealand and Western Australia.  Membership costs US$30/month/script.
