50 Cent's empire continues to expand. Variety reports that the Sundance Channel has picked up six hour long episodes of his andJamie Oliver's reality show "Dream School." Oliver originally created the format in the U.K. The uplifting reality show centers on troubled teens who are inspired to turn their lives around as they are taught by leading professionals in different fields, be it musicians, politicians, filmmakers or scientists.
“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," Oliver said. "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 program is being executive produced under Oliver's Fresh One Prods banner and 50's G-Unit Films and TV. Andrew Jamesonand Jonathan Grosskopf are also on board as executive producers.
“The importance of ‘Dream School’ is monumental. Helping to inspire these students to reach their potential is personally gratifying",”50 said. Forget about what people say about 50, he is one of the few rappers who profit off of products that help and empowers people.
