A few months back, word broke that Apple would enter the scripted series game with a new drama loosely based on Dr. Dre’s life, dubbed Vital Signs, though the tech empire had nothing to say. Now, actor Sam Rockwell confirms his presence in the cast, as well as cast members like Ian McShane and Michael K. Williams, as well what we can expect from the surreal new series.
Just over a month ago, rumor swirled that Apple had in mind to enter the scripted series game with Dr. Dre’s Vital Signs, but it seems will.i.am beat him to it. A new report suggests Apple will launch an unscripted series looking at the world of apps, led by will.i.am.
It was only a matter of time before Apple got in on the scripted series game, and it seems Dr. Dre will pivot from Beats to Vital Signs to do it. The first details of his new loosely autobiographical series have arrived, with Dre both starring and executive producing.
Every year Apple announces a new iPhone at a big keynote event. Sometimes it’s an incremental update, like the iPhone 6S announced last September. Other times, like this year when Apple will announce the iPhone 7, it’s a big leap forward in technology. While there have been many rumors around the upcoming iPhone 7 (including no more headphone jack and wireless charging), none will be as exciting to movie and TV fans as this news: Apple is expected to make their official foray into original programming when the iPhone 7 launches, competing with both Netflix and Amazon.

Following in the footsteps of streaming giants Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, Apple appears to finally be entering the world of original programming. Ever since Netflix took their Instant service a step further by developing their own original television shows, streaming competitors have been rushing to keep up, and in doing so they’ve increasingly pushed Netflix and their own businesses forward in ambition. Apple is the only mega-brand that hasn’t developed its own original content, but it looks like that might be about to change.
More and more cord-cutting seems to prove a viable option, especially now that HBO has made the leap to offer its own independent streaming-service, beginning with Apple this spring. Now, a new report suggests Apple will plan its own independent streaming platform for approximately 25 channels, due to become available this fall.
