2During his years at Columbia University, Kinberg developed scripts as thesis projects which he either optioned or sold. His first project was a 19th century set grave robber tale titled "Ghouls of New York", which he optioned with Redeemable Features. His second project was optioned by producer Edward R. Pressman titled "Breakaway", and was about a basketball star who happens to be an Orthodox Jew. His third project was a horror thriller about five friends who stumble across a creepy town titled "Ghost Town". It was the first script that he sold, when Mostow/Lieberman and Village Roadshow bought it for 'mid-six figures'. The fourth script he developed during his days at Columbia, was Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005). With Akiva Goldsman attached as producer, the script made the rounds in Hollywood a couple of times, before Summit Entertainment bought it in July 2000, for 'low-to-mid-six figures'. With two scripts optioned and two scripts sold, Kinberg became one of the hottest new writers in town. By the close of 2000, Kinberg sold another spec script, a thriller titled "Heist" to Hyde Park and Film Roman for 'low-to-mid-six figures', while also getting attached to write the script for "Deep Blue Sea II", which Akiva Goldsman was also producing.

The pilot he wrote and executive produced from the deal was The Legacy (2002). He then signed on to write the script "Gargoyles" for Disney, as well as signing on to write the script for McG's aviation action drama "Air Show" with Columbia Pictures. By 2002, Kinberg had landed at least 9 script deals since attending Columbia University.
