Dr. Dre Series ‘Vital Signs’ Dropped by Apple Over Sex, Drugs and Violence

Dr. Dre‘s upcoming TV series Vital Signs has reportedly been dropped by Apple, according to The Wall Street Journal. The show was originally set to hit Apple’s streaming service, but company CEO Tim Cook has now rejected it due to sex, profanity and violence. WSJ reports that Cook was troubled by “characters doing lines of cocaine, an extended orgy in a mansion and drawn guns.”

Vital Signs is loosely based on the life of Dr. Dre, and was meant to be Apple’s first scripted series. At six episodes, the show includes stars like Sam Rockwell, Michael K. Williams and Ian McShane. There’s currently no word on where the show will be heading at this point.
