Zayn Malik may no longer be part of the biggest boy band in the world, but that doesn’t mean he’s turning his back on the genre. Malik is using his time in One Direction as the inspiration for his new series, Boys.
The show will focus on a boy band who are catapulted to fame and then must deal with the pressures of being in the spotlight. They’ll probably date some models and get caught with drugs at some point, too. We’re just guessing.
