Paramount Pictures has picked up an UNTITLED LAURYN KAHN ACTION COMEDY pitch from Lauryn Kahn, which has Adam McKay and Will Ferrell attached to produce and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates helmer Jake Szymanski on board to direct.
The story centers on two FBI agents who go deep undercover as a married couple on a reality show about rich Los Angeles housewives.
McKay and Ferrell will produce through their Gary Sanchez banner, with Kevin Messick. Kahn and Szymanski – who will share story credit on the script – both have long ties to Sanchez, having come up through the ranks of the company from its inception and early Funny or Die days. Sanchez has previously helped sell Kahn’s specs He’s Fuckin’ Perfect to Fox 2000 and I’m in Love with the DJ to Sony.
Kahn is repped by WME.
