Singer Zayn Malik is in negotiations to star in a new television series Boys, based on the formation of a successful boy band.

The 23-year-old former One Direction star has apparently teamed up with Law & Order creator Dick Wolf and his wife Noelle to also help executive-produce the show, reported Femalefirst.

“Zayn has started talks with his fellow producers about him appearing in a couple of episodes of Boys.

“He’s really keen to kick of 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 said.

The source also added that the singer might play himself in the upcoming TV series.

“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 said.
