50 Cent, Johnny Weir, Gloria Allred Among ‘Dream School’ Season 2 Instructors

SundanceTV has greenlit season two of non-fiction original series “Dream School,” the network announced Monday. The six-episode season is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014.

Hip-hop artists Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Chuck D. will executive produce and serve as instructors for the new season. The series was created by British chef Jamie Oliver, who executive produces under his Fresh One shingle, along with fellow executive producers Roy Ackerman and Andrew Jameson.

The series introduces troubled teens to mentors who are professional musicians, journalists, filmmakers, scientists, athletes, and actors, in order to inspire them to turn their lives around after the traditional education system has failed them. Homeless, privileged, neglected or bullied, the teenagers on “Dream School” have all dropped out of high school.

Other instructors for season two include chef and restaurateur David Chang; Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir; Emmy award-winning screenwriter and director Cliff Dorfman (“Entourage”); survival expert Les Stroud; journalists Young Turks (Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian); financial educator Alvin Hall; fitness instructor Nicole Winhoffer; Historian David Eisenbach; Rabbi Shmuel “Shmuley” Boteach (author of “Kosher Jesus” and “Kosher Sex”); actor Dean Winters; and lawyer and rights activist Gloria Allred.

“Season One of ‘Dream School’ explored the real life struggles that young people face today and how an outside-the-box approach can result in true transformation and a chance to start over,” said Sarah Barnett, SundanceTV President. “Our audience responded strongly to the powerful drama and inspiration of last season and we think they will find this season every bit as engaging.”
