6 August 2012 8:37 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Music mogul and Midas-esque businessman Dr. Dre has recently struck a script deal with cable network FX for a potential show pilot. Details are currently scarce, but according to THR the show would be a one-hour drama set in the present-day Los Angeles, and would explore not just the music business but the crime business as well.

Relatively fresh writer Sidney Quashi will be billed as both the creator and executive producer of the show along with Dr. Dre. Daniel Schnider (Backwash) will act as co-executive producer with Brad Bertner (The Cellar). The deal will involve Dr. Dre’s Crucial Films/Crucial TV company, which was originally launched in 2007 with New Line Cinema, and currently rests under Warner Bros.

Joshua Malina's 'Leap' To Experimentation

I first met Joshua Malina, an actor I came to adore thanks to his role on Aaron Sorkin's still-genius 1998 series Sports Night, for an interview in support of his wickedly warped 2010 webseries, Backwash. So it's only appropriate that our second chat also be in support of a webseries I adore, Leap Year.

Both Eliza Dushku and Emma Caulfield told me they got involved with Leap Year through co-star/producer Wilson Cleveland. Same for you »
