Dr. Dre Set to Executive Produce First Ever Original Mini-Series with Apple

The mogul and West Coast icon Dr. Dre has shocked the world once already with his Beats x Apple merger but it appears they are looking to accomplish another first together.

This time around he will be in a familiar producer role but not in the studio, after their incredible ‘Straight Outta Compton‘ success he is heading back into the film arena. In what is being called a “semi-autobiographical” direction, the two have teamed up to put together a six episode original drama series that will be the first of its kind for the tech giant. Looks like Netflix and Hulu are going to have to deal with the Steve Jobs built machine sooner rather than later. Especially after Apple dumped even more resources into their original video content creation last year and don’t forget about the Apple TV platform.

As details regarding the new show emerge we will keep you posted.
