It's become public via a source that Zayn Malik will be executive-producer on a new TV series based on a band very much like 1D. The show will follow the group who earn a record deal and then blow up into a global phenomenon.
A source told The Sun, "This is a big deal for Zayn. He has been keen to get stuck into different projects outside of music and this is the perfect move. It's a subject he knows lots about and he will call upon his experiences to advisee the scriptwriters on the show. If the series does well, he'll receive plenty of kudos in the industry."
Casting is reportedly taking place in early September in Los Angeles, and Zayn will be consulting scriptwriters and other producers throughout the entire process.
Who would have thought Zayn would end up working on a series that he can relate so closely to?
