BALLS OUT Pt. 1

Black List Table Reads #2 April 17, 2015

Welcome to the first episode of The Black List Table Reads with Franklin Leonard. The Black List Table Reads takes the best and most exciting screenplays Hollywood hasn’t yet made, and turns them into movies, for your ears. This week The Black List presents the obscenely funny script BALLS OUT from writers Malcolm Spellman (producer of Empire) and Tim Talbott (winner of the 2015 Sundance Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award). It’s brought to life by help of Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas, Lauren Lapkus, Matt Walsh, Eugene Cordero, Casey Wilson, Chris Cox, Joe Wengert, and Craig Mazin. Plus, Franklin chats with writers Malcolm & Tim about the origins of the script beginning in an online message board for writers, the inspiration behind the protagonist Jim Simmers, and advice to any writers that want to do what they do.
