Ted Williams reality show is on deck -- seriously [Poll]

February 22, 2011 | 10:30 am

Ted Williams reality TV show Ted Williams, the formerly homeless man with the golden voice who captured the nation's attention with his rise to instant fame, is reportedly starting work on a reality TV show.

When last we checked in on Ted, he was living in a sober house in L.A., having spent less than two weeks at a rehab facility he said he'd rushed into. Now, Williams' "Second Chances at Life" will begin filming in two weeks in L.A., Ohio and Brooklyn, TMZ said Tuesday.

The series will show how Williams wound up on the streets and follow him as he moves forward to rebuild his career and personal life, his rep told the website. A second season would feature second chances for other people. 

And why didn't we see this coming? (And truly, we didn't -- color us naive.) Because, clinging to the ragged edge of Generation X, we have yet to fully accept that certain things are inevitable anymore.

One thing we'd bet on: There's an audience interested in the second-chance life of Ted Williams.
