50 Cent is coming to reality TV!
According to reports, The Sundance Channel has just greenlighted six hourlong episodes of “Dream School,” a new non-scripted series where the rapper and businessman will give high-school dropouts a second chance.
On the show, which 50 will executive produce under his G-Unit Films and Television company, students will take classes taught by famous professionals — including musicians, politicians, filmmakers, scientists, actors and artists.
The network’s president Sarah Barnett said the series sheds light on a harsh reality.
“Dream School” will be at times devastating, at times deeply uplifting, and entirely full of the genuine conflict and struggle that goes along with true transformation. Viewers will see that play out, not just from the teenagers in the show but also from the celebrities and educators who have signed on for this tough yet potentially life-changing project,” she said in a statement.
Show creator Jamie Oliver said the reality show has already had success in the United Kingdom.
“The series of Dream School we did in the U.K. was one of the things I’m most proud of. We literally changed the lives of many of the kids for the better: some of them went back to school and are now excelling; some of them found out that, despite being told in school that they would never achieve anything, they were actually very gifted at art or acting and went on to achieve great things.”
The show is slated to premiere this fall. Tell us if you plan to tune in below!
