The sitcom will see "a thirty-something couple, exhausted of their mundane life, start to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when an emerging pop star, who is drawn to their super-normal suburban life, moves in", according to the network's official description.

Called "Happy Together", the new show will be broadcast on CBS and will be based on a real-life period in Styles' life, when he lived with a friend, Ben Winston, and his wife in a house in the suburbs of London, when One Direction was in its embryonic stages.

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

He had promised that it was a short arrangement but ended up living in the attic for 20 months.

May insists Britain leaving EU customs union
Mr Varadkar hinted that the British proposal would see the United Kingdom aligned with the EU customs union for some time to come. However, Eurosceptics have raised concerns that it could lead to Britain being tied to the customs union indefinitely.

Both Styles and Winston are executive producers on the new comedy.

'That period of time, he was living with us in the most mundane suburban situation. Even when we went out for a meal, it's such a sweet family neighborhood, no one dreamed it was actually him. I think he's going to have a pretty strong presence as a producer'.

Happy Together is the latest to join CBS' new lineup, the network adding a slew of new series to its fall schedule, including two comedies and three dramas.

Happy Together is Harry's first time behind the camera for a TV project, although he has already impressed in-front of one in Dunkirk, the 2017 war movie directed by Christopher Nolan.
