TLC to Air Ted Haggard Reality Special with the Dramatic Title ‘Scandalous’, May Lead to Series


TLC will soon premiere Ted Haggard: Scandalous, a one-hour reality show about his life, the L.A. Times reports:

(If successful, the special has the potential to spin out into a series.)

"My family and I endured the darkest hours imaginable in the public spotlight, and have spent the last four years fighting and struggling to rebuild our lives, our faith and our family," said Haggard in a statement. "Showing the world the new chapter of our lives will hopefully inspire others to find their own path to overcome their struggles and embrace the power of acceptance. The church is open to all, even those who have committed the darkest sins."

The special shows Haggard launching his new ministry in Colorado Springs, Colo. — the same town he left after the scandal.

TLC also airs Sarah Palin's Alaska.
