NEW YORK – Kwame Jackson (search) is starting to look less like an "Apprentice" and more like Donald Trump.
The runner-up in the first season of the NBC reality show "The Apprentice" (search) has completed a multibillion dollar real-estate deal of his own. With two other partners, Jackson has made a deal with officials in Prince George's County in Maryland to develop an 80 to 130 acre area into commercial and residential property.
The deal is worth $3.8 billion and will provide over 32,000 jobs, Jackson said.
"For me, 'The Apprentice' was the beginning," he told The Associated Press Tuesday. "It's not a ceiling, it's a floor."
In developing one of the nation's more affluent black counties, "We believe in being catalysts in what we call the second generation of the civil rights movement," Jackson said.
His company, Legacy Holdings, also plans production of an executive menswear line and a network TV show.
