*Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson will executive produce the Sundance Channel show “Dream School” under his G-Unit Films and Television banner and also appear in the original non-fiction series aimed at helping troubled teens, the network’s President Sarah Barnett announced today.
The series format was created by Jamie Oliver who will also executive produce, along with Roy Ackerman, under his Fresh One shingle. Oliver joins the Dream School project through his role in the successful UK series.
