Cori Gonzalez-Macuer and Louis Mendiola have collaboratively become part of an exclusive list.
The pair have together written a script which has made The Black List - an incredibly influential annual survey of Hollywood screenplays - which buck the usual trends of conventional storytelling and are yet to be produced.
"To be recognised by them is, for me, amazing," Mendiola tells Newshub.
Mendiola, a US-born writer, has worked with 7 Days star Gonzalez on a variety of projects for about three years.
The Black List describes the script, called ASS, as a "new sort of entertainment" on its Twitter account.
"There's a bit of a political undertone that goes with it," Mendiola explains.
It's about a puppeteer who accepts work with his ex-fiancee on a "top secret" gig, being forced to fill-in for a famous donkey on a popular TV political comedy.
After being named on the prestigious list, the pair have even been in touch with a production company.
"There's definitely interest - people have already contacted us about it," Mendiola said.
"Once it was put out there that we were pushed up by The Black List - now they want to come and chat with us about it and see what we can do with it."
Watch this space - many scripts which have made The Black List have gone on to win significant awards.
