David Arquette: What It Takes to Make a Dream School

Katie's Take

David Arquette joined Katie to discuss his new show "Dream School" where 15 high-risk students who have faced various struggles -- bullying, pregnancy, teachers giving up on them -- are placed inside a "dream school" with famous teachers.

So, who are some of the personalities we can expect to see? Teaching finance is none other than Suze Orman. And for debate, expect to see Jesse Jackson. Oliver Stone and Swizz Beatz are also on the dream school faculty. And Arquette makes an awesome homeroom teacher.

“Why did you want to get involved in this project?” Katie asked.

“Well, Jamie Oliver did a series like this in the U.K., and they showed it to me and it was just amazing,” Arquette explained. “I was a bit of a troublemaker in school, bit of a troublemaker still. I thought that I could relate to the kids and I thought it would be an adventure.”

He was also open regarding his addiction to alcohol and his struggles with his recent divorce from actress Courteney Cox. He explained that this show will expose the real David, and not the personality he is often linked to.
