Singer Zayn Malik is set to star in a new television series, based on the formation of a successful boy band.
The former One Direction star has teamed up with "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf and his wife Noelle Wolf to help produce a scripted show called "Boys", reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Zayn has started talks with his fellow producers about him appearing in a couple of episodes of 'Boys'. He's really keen to kick off his acting career and sees this as the perfect opportunity to do so, especially as he will have a lot of creative control," a source told The Sun newspaper.
"The discussions are still ongoing and there is still a chance he may just play himself in the show. Either way, he is taking his role as executive producer very seriously and sees this as a big stepping stone to working more on TV and film in the future," the source added.
