Harry Styles is set to executive produce a new sitcom loosely based on his life.

The 24-year-old star has signed on as executive producer for the upcoming CBS sitcom 'Happy Together', which will follow his story during the period after One Direction - which also features Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik - rose to international fame.



The show stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West as a married couple whose quiet life in suburbia is changed when a musician played by Felix Mallard moves in, according to People magazine.

It's actually based on a time in Harry's own life when he settled in with friend and mentor Ben Winston - who now works on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' - and his wife Meredith after his band's success on 'The X Factor' in the UK.

Felix, 20, opened up about Harry's involvement in the programme, and said he's "really keen".

He explained: "I got to chat with him when were first deciding to do the show and he's really excited. He's really keen.

"He knows that it's a story based on his life, and he gets to produce a TV show which is fantastic for his career.

So I think he really, really does care."

Although the sitcom will take some liberties, and not aim to be a strictly accurate representation, it's thought Harry will still want to stay involved in a big way.

Amber added: "This is his story, and even though we're not telling it exactly as it happened, people are going to ask questions - like, 'Did this really happen to you?'

"So he's going to care about the stories that we're telling. I think he's going to have a pretty strong presence as a producer."
