Zayn Malik should have brought show to me: Simon Cowell
Music mogul Simon Cowell has said he is not surprised by Zayn Malik's decision to produce a TV show, but he wishes he had come to him first.
Los Angeles: Music mogul Simon Cowell has said he is not surprised by Zayn Malik's decision to produce a TV show, but he wishes he had come to him first.
Malik is producing a boyband drama series of NBC network.
The show, titled "Boys", mirrors his real-life experience as a former member of One Direction.
The 23-year-old singer is teaming up with TV producer Dick Wolf for the project.
Cowell, Malik's former record label boss, who signed One Directon to his Syco label after it was formed, and came second, on his TV show "The X Factor" in 2010, believes the singer owed it to him to offer him the rights to the project first, reported Entertainment Tonight.
"Nothing surprises me anymore. I think he should have come to me with it, if I'm being honest with you. I do actually believe that when they've got these ideas, bearing in mind where we started, they should actually come to me," Cowell., 56, said.
The show, meanwhile, will be written by Sherri Cooper Landsman and Jennifer Levin.
