"Based on the hit U.K. reality show, 'I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!' is a groundbreaking live series event premiering June 1 and stripped over four weeks in June," NBC reps said in a statement to Access. "Ten celebrities of various backgrounds will be dropped into the heart of the Costa Rican jungle to face challenges designed to test their skills in adapting to the wilderness and to raise money for their favorite charities. Rod Blagojevich will be a participant on the show pending the court's approval."
The former governor was removed from office in January after an arrest on federal corruption charges that included allegations of a plot to sell the state's empty senate seat following President Barack Obama's departure from the position.
The reality show won't be Blagojevich's first time in front of the cameras – he appeared on "Good Morning America," "The View" and "The Late Show With David Letterman" to defend himself during his impeachment trial.
