“We’re so excited that our first venture in the rom-com space will be bringing The Worst Best Man to life,” said PXE’s Tossou. “As a lover of rom-coms, I’ve been enjoying the recent resurgence of the genre refreshed with more diverse characters. And as a black woman, it’s not too often that I see people who look like me as the main love interest in these stories. Mia’s strong female characters infused with such wit, humor, and relatability made this so hard to put down and such an easy ‘yes’ for us.”

Sosa added, “I’m thrilled that Project X has chosen to adapt my book – they are committed to sharing new voices and stories, and believe, as I do, that audiences are hungry for more content featuring strong leading roles for women of color. The heroine of The Worst Best Man is a first-generation Brazilian American, and the book explores the ways in which her own successes (and failures) are amplified because she feels she has so much to live up to.”
The author is repped by Sarah Younger of Nancy Yost Literary Agency and UTA.
