It looks like Dr. Dre is going to have to start working for that Apple check! A new story from The Hollywood Reporter says Dre is executive producing and starring in a new original scripted series for Apple. The show, called Vital Signs, is described as, dark, semi-autobiographical and kind of raunchy. The THR piece describes a witness account of an orgy scene that was filmed for the show recently on an LA set. This is a pretty huge deal as it marks the first foray into original, scripted programming for Apple, the most valuable company on the planet. Director Paul Hunter is overseeing the project and Sam Rockwell and Mo McCrae are some of the other cast members that have been revealed so far. The word is Apple will roll out all 6 episodes of the series at one time as Netflix does with its own original programming.
