Martha Little

  • Discipline:Producer
  • Program Year:Producing Lab 2007


Martha Little is a writer/producer who lives in Los Angeles. She began her career producing theater and acquiring literary properties for film and television. After purchasing the rights to the story of the first all- black basketball team to win a NCAA championship, Little partnered with Bobby Newmeyer’s Outlaw Productions to develop and produce Outside Shot which was set up at Warner Bros. She was also Executive Producer of Late Bloomers, which was chosen for Dramatic Competition at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival and was picked up for distribution by Strand Releasing.

Little has been writing professionally since 1998 and is a member of the WGA. Her first screenplay, Eva and Me, was originally set up at October Films. A female buddy movie, this comedy set in the Depression-era South is about a woman who (with the help of her sexy cousin) finds romance and rediscovers her zest for life while stealing back her car – the vehicle in which Bonnie and Clyde met their bloody end. Patricia Cardoso (Real Women Have Curves) is attached to direct.

Her other writing projects include a treatment for Showtime called The Cactus Curtain about George Parr, aka “The Duke of Duval,” who orchestrated the infamous Ballot Box 13 scandal and stole the 1941 Senate election for LBJ; an adaptation of the best selling novel Body and Soul by Frank Conroy for Sony Classical; and an original untitled screenplay based on the life of the English queen Boudicea with Nicole Kidman. Little is currently working on an original high-tech heist thriller entitled Spread, as well as an original romantic comedy set in a 21st century where it is no longer chic for the offspring of the very wealthy to be unemployed. The script, entitled Affluenza, is expected in the fall of 2007.
