Simon Cowell Slams Zayn Malik For One Direction-Inspired TV Series

Simon Cowell isn't happy that Zayn Malik is creating a One Direction-inspired TV series without him.

Malik is reportedly set to executive produce a scripted TV series called 'Boys' about his life and experiences in the boy band.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Cowell says he should have been approached about the project since he was responsible for putting the band together and its success on 'X Factor'.

"Nothing surprises me anymore," says the 56-year-old. "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."

"I like everyone who's got ambition but I'm not going to lie, there's always part of me that thinks they should give it to me."

Zayn, 23, left One Direction to launch his solo career. Although he has cancelled performances in recent months due to his severe anxiety.

The pilot is reportedly being written by the creators of CW's 'Beauty and the Beast', Sherri Cooper Landsman and Jennifer Levin.
