Dr. Dre Filming Apple’s First Scripted Television Series

Apple is making its first original television show. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the technology giant is backing a top-secret scripted series starring one of its own executives, Beats co-founder and rap legend Dr. Dre.


…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.

Dunno, but something about this makes me wonder WTF is going on in the minds of people over at Apple. With all that Apple does to hone its image, making their first self-produced TV series something like this just doesn’t fit. Apparently this Mr Dre has a lot of sway over in Cupertino…
