Impeached Blagojevich Cast in NBC Show
The reality for Rod Blagojevich? He may become a TV star.
The former governor of Illinois, who pleaded not guilty to federal racketeering and fraud charges Tuesday, has inked a deal to star on NBC's summer reality series, I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Blagojevich's participation requires court approval because the show will be shot in Costa Rica and he is not allowed to leave the United States.
Blagojevich would be one of 10 celebrities competing in survival-of-the-fittest challenges in the Costa Rican jungle to raise money for charity. The series, adapted from the U.K. version, will premiere June 1 and is slated to unspool four nights a week for a month.
