Reality gig wrapped
RAPPER 50 Cent (pictured) is set to become a reality TV teacher in the US version of top chef Jamie Oliver’s Dream School. The show, which chronicles college dropouts as they attempt to earn a diploma, offers young adults an education they couldn’t be taught in conventional school, featuring a faculty that includes professional musicians, politicians, filmmakers, actors and artists. Oliver, who created the show in Britain, says, ‘‘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 very gifted at art or acting and went on to achieve great things.’’ 50 Cent is expected to appear as a teacher, and he will also serve as an executive producer under his production company G-Unit Films and Television banner. Dream School is slated to premiere in the US later in 2013.
