Are you sitting down, Directioners? Because you might want to brace yourselves before hearing this bit of television development news: Zayn Malikyes, he of the perfect "You and I" high note—is working on a new television series inspired by his time in One Direction.
The new series, titled Boys, will follow the formation of a wildly successful boy band and the excitement—and intense pressure—that comes along with the success. The show is being written by the creators of The CW's Beauty and the Beast, Sherri Cooper Landsman and Jennifer Levin, and produced by Law & Order mastermind Dick Wolf and his wife, Noelle Wolf.
Boys will follow Empire's lead in that it'll release original music in conjunction with the series.
"Dick Wolf is a legend, and the opportunity to work with him and NBC to create a compelling drama series is awesome," Zayn said in a statement announcing the news.
