Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and many others have demonstrated that any tech company can make an original television series if they just have enough resources to make it happen. So it was only a matter of time before Apple got in on the action, which they now plan to do with Vital Signs starring Dr. Dre.
Vital Signs will feature a premium-cable-like blend of sex and violence, with an “extended orgy scene” having already been filmed for the series — or at least that’s what the producers are claiming that orgy was for. The series will be “semi-autobiographical” with regards to Dre’s character, and each episode in the six-episode season will focus on a different emotion experienced by him.
According to the report on the show in The Hollywood Reporter, Vital Signs “likely will be distributed via Apple Music,” but a deal with an outside streaming service or even a traditional television distributor might have a hand in the show’s eventual release to the people. For now, you can get some more information in THR‘s story on the show right here.
