The Sundance Channel announced recently the greenlight of a new non-fiction television series, produced by rapper 50 Cent, called “Dream School,” which centers around troubled teens who are paired up with mentors from various professions including musicians, politicians, and more.
The premise of the show is something like this: What would happen if the kids who were the hardest to reach in conventional school, instead attended a place of learning where the educators were achievers and leaders–many of whom have become household names? In “Dream School,” classes are taught by professionals from the top of their fields-and the faculty includes professional musicians, politicians, filmmakers, scientists, actors and artists.
