Zayn Malik’s new show Boys will be inspired by his time in One Direction.
The musician has joined Entourage producer Dick Wolf in creating Boys – a story following the formation of a hugely successful boyband and the excitement, competition and fun that comes with that fame.
“Dick Wolf is a legend and the opportunity to work with him and NBC to create a compelling drama series is awesome,” Zayn admitted.

The show will also give a glimpse into the kind of pressures a world-known boyband might face.
“It’s exciting to be diving into this project with such passionate and prolific producers,” President of NBC Entertainment Jennifer Salke told Variety.
“Zayn certainly brings an authentic point of view to this world where kids are catapulted into fame at a dizzying speed.
“On top of our excitement around the creative ideas being discussed, we have a lot of respect for the musical and digital ambitions behind the project.”
Louis Walsh took a pop at the singer and his work on the tv show.
