Franklin Leonard

Founder, CEO

A McKinsey management consultant turned studio development executive sounds like shorthand for a Hollywood screenwriter's nightmare. Yet Franklin Leonard, a Harvard-educated Georgia native, shows the love every year with The Black List, an annual ranking of the year's best unproduced scripts. The Black List works like an eHarmony for Hollywood, where moviemakers can find great scripts and scripts find moviemakers. Many of these scripts are subsequently produced: Oscar winners Juno and There Will Be Blood are alums. He is also an advisor to BoomGen Studios and Plympton.
