We already heard that Apple was looking at making its own TV shows. Now comes word that the first one will star none other than Dr Dre, former member of NWA and now Apple executive.

The show is called 'Vital Signs', and will be a gritty semi-autobiographical drama starring Dre, who will also be executive producer.

According to the leaked info, each episode will focus on a different emotion experienced by Dre's character.

It's expected to also star Sam Rockwell ('Iron Man 2') and Mo McRae ('Sons of Anarchy'), and to be distributed through Apple Music. Presumably that's because Apple's long-awaited TV service won't have launched by then.

The show is also said to feature at least one orgy scene. Other details are a little scarce.

Dre joined Apple when the consumer electronics giant bought his Beats Electronics audio products range back in 2014. His previous acting credits include 'Training Day' and 'Set It Off'. He also produced the NWA biopic 'Straight Outta Compton'.

Apple is rumoured to be working on its own TV streaming service. Though progress has been far from smooth – it's reportedly faced many delays due to negotiations with TV networks reluctant to cede control to Apple.

The fruity firm is said to be keen to make its own TV shows after seeing the success Netflix and Amazon have enjoyed doing the same.
