Ted Williams, ‘Homeless Radio Guy,’ Scored a TV Show

Ted "Golden Voice" Williams, the inspiring-slash-polarizing homeless-guy-cum-YouTube-sensation, has found his rightful home on reality television, according to TMZ. Williams's upcoming series, Second Chances at Life, will document how the street singer went from a promising radio career to living on the streets to Internet prominence, and will follow Ted's life as he "battles to rebuild his career and personal life," which probably means staying sober and reconciling with the family he abandoned. The show will be shot in three locations: Brooklyn, his hometown; Ohio, where he was homeless; and Los Angeles, "where he's been hanging out at expensive restaurants." Ridiculous, sure. Obvious ending to his story, yes. But not a bad idea for a television show! [TMZ]
