Dr Dre Working On New Drama About The Music Industry And Crime
Hip-hop mogul Dr Dre has reportedly signed up to develop and produce a new crime drama for US television network FX. The drama series is said to focus on both the music industry and the criminal underworld of present day Los Angeles…
It was reported that the network have closed a script development deal with the former NWA rapper – which will see him oversee production on the series. Compton born Dre is working with writer Sidney Quashie and is likely to add a stamp of authenticity to the project as a veteran of the West Coast based music industry.
The project has currently been commissioned for a one hour pilot – and will see the mogul expand his brand further, following the recent success of the Dre Beats headphone brand.
According to NME, in addition to the upcoming television project, the ‘Forgot About Dre’ rapper is still working on his eagerly anticipated ‘Detox’ album, which the rapper has previously indicated will be his last full-studio release.
