Report: Apple's Making Its First Original TV Series Starring Dr. Dre and 'At Least One Orgy'

Apple's been real good to Dr Dre. First they went and bought his shitty headphones company and now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, they're bankrolling his new show, Vital Signs. Sources close to the alleged production say Sam Rockwell and Mo McCrae have already been cast as supporting characters. Dre himself will be playing the lead character in the, reportedly, semi-autobiographical tale. Which means he won't be stretching himself too far beyond his last major production, the very autobiographical Straight Outta Compton.

So far there's no official word on the production — both Apple and Dr Dre have declined to comment — but reports from insiders assure THR that there has been at least one major orgy shot so far. Throw in a few rapes and a decapitation and this could be better than Game of Thrones.

If the reports pan out, this would be Apple's first real foray into film production since Steve Jobs founded Pixar. It would also back up all those people who have been spending the last four years insisting that Apple will move further into the living room "any day now".

    Excellent first line with which I fully concur: "Appleā€™s been real good to Dr Dre. First they went and bought his shitty headphones company ..."

      never though id also read throwing in rape and decapitation would make something better either.
