This oughta be good!

They say life imitates art, but this seems like the other way around!

After leaving One Direction last year, Zayn Malik is now producing a scripted TV show about a fictional boy band!

The 1D alum is teaming up with producers from HBO's hit show Entourage to create a series about a guy group as they struggle to make it in the music industry, and ultimately their stardom skyrockets!

Sounds familiar, right?

Well, a source told The Sun that the 23-year-old's personal experience will help shape the episodes, 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."

Ideally, the boys cast on the 1D alum's show will become an actual musical act, and release singles from the series!

Plus, this might not be the UK native's only TV endeavor, if the new project is a success. The insider added:

"If the series does well, he'll receive plenty of kudos in the industry."

Casting will start next month in El Lay, and the former X Factor UK contestant will be working with writers and producers to narrow down the cast!

Will U be tuning in for Zayn's new show?!
