This is the little secret we could not divulge for all of the most recent Get Repped Now! promotion, and it was killing us! While we *could* announce that Coverage Ink's Get Repped Now! landed writer Brandon Barker at Benderspink and then subsequently got him signed at UTA -- we couldn't announce the freaking SPEC SALE until now!

So there it is. Brandon Barker's script NOTTINGHAM + HOOD has sold to Disney for an undisclosed 6-figure amount. Read all about it at Deadline.

The script concerns The Sheriff of Nottingham's capture of Robin Hood and subsequent tumultuous road trip to bring his man to justice. It's Midnight Run in Sherwood Forest. 

"Coverage Ink is what started it all!," enthuses Barker. "I cannot thank you guys enough. Major dream come true!" 

 Special thanks to Jake Wagner from Benderspink for making it all happen.

We're still working our way through the big pile of Get Repped Now! submissions from November, looking for the next Brandon Barker. If you missed it, don't worry -- Coverage Ink's Get Repped Now! returns in the spring. In the meantime, get to work, writers!

CI Senior Story Analyst Kevin O'Hare Sells Pilot to ABC

Coverage Ink senior story analyst Kevin O'Hare, an accomplished writer/producer with numerous TV sales under his belt, put another notch in his gunbelt with the sale of ASCENSION to ABC, The Hollywood reporter recently announced.

O'Hare, who has been a consultant to Coverage Ink since 2005, describes the pilot as an FBI procedural with a female lead. 

"I literally just found out about the sale on Thursday -- I did network pitches and left the spec pilot and series outline behind the week before. Had Brillstein attached, and they took it into ABC Studios -- then the studio focused on the network, and they bit. Additionally, I have a blind script deal with Universal I'm going to be commencing in the next few weeks as well, so things are going to be awesome but crazy (feels like it's always feast or famine, doesn't it?) I'm thrilled."

As well he should be.  Brillstein Entertainment is attached to executive produce. O'Hare is repped by Verve and Underground. KICK ASS, KEVIN!
