According to The Hollywood Reporter, Apple is planning to join companies like Netflix and Amazon in the push for original content by making its very first original series. Reportedly the show is called Vital Signs. Dr. Dre will star in the "semi-autobiographical" series and serve as an executive producer. (He was also an executive producer on last year's Straight Outta Compton.)
According to THR's sources, "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." Each of the six episodes will allegedly follow the protagonist as he experiences a different emotion.
A representative for Apple was not immediately available for comment.
