Apple’s First Original TV Series Could Star Dr. Dre

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Beats co-founder and Apple executive Dr. Dre will be starring in and producing his possess six-show strange array called Vital Signs.  The semi-autobiographical storyline is rumored to be distributed around Apple Music, includes other celebrities like Sam Rockwell and Mo McCrae, and contains “an bacchanal scene”.

Last year, Variety pennyless a news that Apple was looking during bankrolling a possess strange content. This bid is being led by Eddy Cue, who heads up Music and iTunes. Cue recently had developer family duties shifted off of him and onto SVP Phil Schiller, so presumably he now has time to plod around creation TV shows.

I have to admit, that a thought of an pithy TV uncover being bankrolled by Apple had me chuckling for a impulse as we deliberate Steve Jobs’ stance on scurrilous element in a App Store.

However, on critical speculation of this, it creates sense. Apple is arguably behind when it comes to strange content. It creates some clarity they’d try strange programming from one of their possess artists first.Netflix and Amazon are both pushing tough to accelerate their positions. Providers are relocating to their possess silos to offer programming — this is since Netflix is creation their possess stuff, since eventually everybody large adequate (like Disney) will lift out and have their possess channel. Apple is expected formulation for when it has a streaming use that needs strange calm to expostulate subscriptions

And let’s not forget that Dre has an awfully good lane record of mentoring and operative with a best in a business and formulating tip nick trends and content. So we would have to see this myself before essay it off prematurely.

Regardless, Apple has adequate money on palm to take a risk here and try to mangle into this other market.
