The single-camera comedy, which has received a script commitment from the network, examines sex, race and everything else your parents told you to never talk about.
Nash will pen the script and exec produce alongside Packer and his Will Packer Productions head of television Korin Huggins.
#PeopleAreTalking comes a day after Packer sold semi-autobiographical Like Father, Like Son to NBC. Packer's company is also behind NBC'sUncle Buck remake, which has drawn the ire of John Candy and John Hughes' families.
Packer is with UTA and Ziffren Brittenham; Nash is with CAA, Hirsch Wallerstein.
