Zayn, Dick Wolf Plan An NBC Boy Band Drama

Former One Direction member Zayn Malik is teaming with “Law and Order” franchise creator Dick Wolf on an NBC scripted series about his own life and experiences in the boy band.

“Boys” follows the formation of a hugely successful boy band and captures all the excitement, competition, and fun, but also provides an inside look into the pressure that follows.

Sherri Cooper Landsman and Jennifer Levin (The CW’s “Beauty and the Beast”) will write the project, while Wolf and his wife Noelle Wolf will executive produce alongside Malik, Landsman, Levin, Amanda Ghost, Gregor Cameron and Peter Jankowski. Sarah Stennett will serve as executive music producer and will manage all music rights created in the series.
