1D fans rejoice! Harry Styles is executive producer on a sitcom inspired by his early years in the band

One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles is executive-producer on a sitcom inspired by his early days with One Direction.

On Wednesday CBS announced that the show – titled Happy Together – will air this autumn.

The programme will star Damon Wayans Jr and Amber Stevens West as a married couple whose settled lives in suburbia are disrupted when an aspiring pop star – played by Australian Felix Mallard – moves in with them.

It’s based on Harry’s real life living situation when he moved in with friend Ben Winston at the house he shared with his wife when the group had just competed on X Factor.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine last year, TV producer Ben told how Harry originally said he would be moving into his home for two weeks because a house he liked nearby needed work.

But the star actually ended up sleeping on a mattress in the attic for almost two years.

Ben is an executive producer on the Late Late Show With James Corden and will have the same role on Happy Together, CBS said.

Happy Together is due to arrive in autumn and will air at 8.30pm on Mondays, according to the network.

The programme was announced during CBS’s 2018-2019 primetime line-up reveal.

Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment, said: “We’ve maintained stability across winning nights, while adding some important new pieces to our Monday night line-up.”
