The comedy was written by Noushin Jahanian.

Will Packer Productions has placed comedy feature pitch Hot Mess at Universal.

British comedian London Hughes is set to star in the project, which is based on her and Noushin Jahanian's idea. Jahanian will write the screenplay.

Will Packer and James Lopez will produce through their Will Packer Productions. Johanna Byer will serve as executive producer. Erik Baiers will oversee the project on behalf of Universal.

"Will Packer and James Lopez are my L.A. Fairy God-Dudes! James was one of the first executives I met when I got to the States and he immediately believed in me," said Hughes.

Hughes, repped by UTA, Haven and Curtis Brown, will soon release stand-up special To Catch a D*ck on Netflix and will also be seen in the streamer's Nic Cage series The History of Swear Words.

Jahanian is repped by Kaplan/Perrone.
