The streaming platform landed the comedy spec, which is titled The Tradition, with McG producing the film through his Wonderland Sound and Vision banner. 

The Tradition is reported to be a romantic comedy that aims to celebrate the cultural differences between both Mexican and American wedding traditions. Nico Godinez Miller and Grant Mellon have written the script, which is said to pull from both of their cultural backgrounds. Mary Viola will also join McG as a producer on the film.
