Dr. Dre Filming Apple’s First Scripted Television Series ➝

The Hollywood Reporter:

Multiple sources say the 50-year-old mogul is starring in and executive producing his own six-episode vehicle, dubbed Vital Signs, and the production is being bankrolled by Apple. The series likely will be distributed via Apple Music, the company’s subscription streaming site, but it’s not clear if Apple TV, the iTunes store or other Apple platforms (or even a traditional television distributor) will be involved.

It would be odd for Apple to distribute this show through Apple Music — the service offers music videos, but it definitely doesn’t feel like the home for a video series.

And it sounds like Apple isn’t being too timid with their first original show:

While technically a half-hour, the show is not a comedy. Instead, it is described as a dark drama with no shortage of violence and sex. In fact, an episode filming Monday and Tuesday this week featured an extended orgy scene. Sources tell THR that naked extras simulated sex in a mansion in the Bird Streets neighborhood of Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills.
