Easily is the worst word for the adventure of selling a script.

You probably know that, but let's make it clear for the rest: the agents get around 10% of everything they sell, meaning that if they sell your script to a studio or sell a spec to tv or even find you some job for some series/whatever they get those 10%. But first they have to read you script (or log-line/synopsis/blahblah) among the pile of thousands of scripts they get. Everyone thinks he's got some amazing idea for a movie and that they can be writers and know everything there is to know about writing for the screen. And they're read by some assistant. So if that assistant, by some miracle, find your writing exceptional and actually say some good word about it to the guy in charge in the agency, they might just invite you to a meeting or, if sweet baby Jesus is in a good mood, actually buy the script. Then it's another odyssey (for them, this time) to sell that script to a studio, get some producer interested to green-lit the project.
Roughly the chances of that happening (if you have an amazing script, written professionally) are bellow 0,0001%, I'd say. Go for it.
