Monkeypaw Productions is the studio created by Jordan Peele who had a part in creating Key & Peele, Get Out, BlackKklansman, and upcoming productions such as Us and The Twilight Zone. The studio has now set up an online form for open screenplay submissions, meaning anyone, even someone without an agent can submit their script for consideration.

A deal this big typically comes with fine print, and this case the fine print is important and appears next to the form. The fine print points out that you are submitting your work does not establish any kind of confidential relationship between you and the studio, which as points out, “people at the studio can talk about your screenplay with whoever they want.”

That said, not every day does an award-winning production company openly ask for scripts.
