Zayn Malik may have left One Direction, but he’s not ready to leave the world of boy bands completely. The solo singer is reportedly creating a new show about a 1D-style boy band. Will he end up revealing shocking secrets about One Direction?
Zayn Malik, 23, will try his hand at scripted television by becoming the executive producer on a TV series about a boy band, The Sun reports. “It’s a subject he knows lots about and he will call upon his experiences to advise the scriptwriters on the show,” a source close to Zayn told the outlet. Zayn has no problem dissing 1D, so those “experiences” he shares might not be great ones.
The show will focus around a fictional boy band that goes through “the trials and tribulations of earning a record label to becoming a global phenomenon.” However, the plan is that the boy band will become a genuine musical act and will launch a music career in addition to the show.
But producing isn’t the only thing Zayn has in mind when it comes to TV and movies. He told Elle UK that he would love to start acting if he was “given the right role.” Maybe Zayn could cameo on his own show!
The boy band series is being produced by the makers of Entourage, so you know Zayn’s show is going to be insidery. Zayn’s history with One Direction is filled with drama, especially since he left the band in 2015 in such a dramatic way. He quit the band in the midst of their On The Road Again tour and said he was doing it to have some “private time out of the spotlight.”
Well, that wasn’t exactly what Zayn had in mind. Since leaving 1D, he has launched an incredibly successful solo career. He has also slammed his time in One Direction countless times, saying that he felt free when he finally quit the band. It wouldn’t surprise us at all if Zayn unveils more secrets about his time in 1D through the show.
