Coverage Ink's GET REPPED NOW! Returns
We got Brandon Barker into BENDERSPINK. Are you next?


Summer 2014 we launched our first Coverage Ink's Get Repped Now! The response was tremendous. Five scripts were judged “considers” – four features and one TV pilot. We’re enormously pleased to report that Benderspink head of lit Jake Wagner is now working with writer Brandon Barker based on the strength of his feature spec “Nottingham and Hood.”

For a limited time only, three incredible literary representatives:

Jake Wagner (Benderspink) Chris Mills (Magnet Management), and Jeff Belkin (Zero Gravity) will personally read any scripts submitted to Coverage Ink for script analysis that garner a "Consider" for script (roughly the top 5% of submissions on average.) Wagner and Belkin will read the feature scripts; Wagner and Mills will read the TV pilots.

That’s all there is to it.  The door is open.  If you've got the goods, you've got a real shot of getting a kick-ass manager. Bring it!


1) Click the SUBMIT IT button.

2)  Fill out the online release and order form and then upload your screenplay or teleplay.

3) You will receive a confirmation and a Paypal invoice from CI
for the screenplay analysis within 24 hours .

4) You will receive your analysis back within ten calendar days*. If you wish to receive it faster, select semi-rush ($25 additional, 5-day turnaround) or RUSH ($59 additional, 48-hour turnaround.) 

*NOTE: If we are at capacity, we may have to push your coverage delivery back. Due to the huge response last time we were running about 4-5 days behind at the end of the Get Repped Now! promotion. We’ll let you know when you submit if we anticipate a delay.

Considers will be sent to Belkin, Mills and Wagner with our recommendations and the coverage. Script submissions that score below consider ('Consider with Reservations' and 'Pass') will not be forwarded, but you will have a solid road map for how to make your script rock in the form of a detailed, thoughtful and empowering script coverage report. 

Please note that if you enter early enough, or select rush or semi-rush, you may have a chance to polish and resubmit before the 11/9 deadline, giving you a second chance (please check on rush availability before submitting)

STANDARD COVERAGE COST: $129 for features, $99 for 1-hrs and $79 for 1/2 hrs. This includes a detailed 10-14 page coverage report analyzing every aspect of the screenplay. For more info please see the FAQ page at

We're very excited to be offering this, and we hope this will be the first of many such opportunities for writers. Good luck, everyone!
