Dick Wolf is taking on the story of One Direction. Variety reports the Chicago Fire EP is developing a new NBC series with Zayn Malik titled Boys.
The drama will follow “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.”
Beauty and the Beast co-creators Sherri Cooper Landsman and Jennifer Levin will write and executive produce alongside Wolf, Noelle Wolf, Malik, and Peter Jankowski.
From Noelle Wolf:
We were intrigued by the synergistic potential that Zayn brings to the project. ‘Boys’ will be a show that’s totally integrated on broadcast and digital platforms. Casting and original music will be major components, giving the show promotional potential on multiple levels.”
