One Direction are reportedly in talks to head back to the small screen to star in their own comedy TV show.

The “What Makes You Beautiful” hitmakers first started as a band on talent show “The X Factor U.K.,” and according to Britain’s Daily Star Sunday newspaper, they are eyeing a return to television.

An insider tells the publication, “A new TV show is being discussed. At this stage, the pilot sees them living in Los Angeles by the beach. Comedy writers will be working on it, so that it really gives all the boys a chance to shine, and be a great advert for their new music.

“The show will be peppered with guest cameos, too. The plan is for the boys to see a pilot in the spring. No series has been commissioned yet, and it is all very hush-hush.”

The boy band is currently in the middle of the European leg of its stadium tour.
