LOS ANGELES: Singer Zayn Malik is about to make a move into the film and TV industry after reportedly landing a role as an executive producer.
According to The Sun newspaper, the 23-year-old former One Direction star is said to have teamed up with creators of Emmy-winning US series "Entourage" to make a TV series about an aspiring boyband, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"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 advise the scriptwriters on the show," said a source.
The source added: "If the series does well, he will receive plenty of kudos in the industry."
The series will chart the group's rise from bedroom musicians to global superstars - meaning he will be able to draw on his plentiful experiences.
