Former One Direction star Zayn Malik is dipping his toes into the ocean of TV - and has been given a producer role on a fictional show about a boyband.

Check your calendar as much as you want, this is not an April Fool's joke, oh no.

For someone who apparently wasn't keen on being in a boyband, it may seem like an unlikely career move. But whatevs, he can do anything he wants as far as we're concerned.

The Sun today reported that he'd taken the job of executive producer.

According to the paper, the series he will be working on comes from the director of the award-winning US series, Entourage.

It will follow the lives of a boyband and their ups and downs as they try and land a record deal.

A source was quoted saying: "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."

Casting, apparently, will begin in LA in September, so if Zayn fancies following in former bandmate Harry Styles' footsteps, he could try his hand at acting.

Harry's working on his acting debut at the mo, while filming for WW1 film Dunkirk.

Good luck ZM!
