Golden-voiced Ted Williams will star in his own reality show, his rep confirmed to news outlets on Tuesday.

"Second Chances at Life" will begin shooting in Brooklyn, Ohio and Los Angeles in two weeks and chronicle the former homeless Ohio man’s rapid rise to fame, Williams’ rep told the New York Daily News and TMZ.

The show, which will air on an unnamed network, will cover how the former radio announcer descended into homelessness and chart his efforts to repair his career and personal life, TMZ reported.

Williams became a household name last month after a video on the website of the Columbus Dispatch featuring his pitch-perfect radio voice went viral.

According to the Dispatch, Williams is now in a Los Angeles “clean-living” recovery house after having bailed on treatment for drug and alcohol abuse at a Texas rehab facility recommended by Dr. Phil McGraw.

"I love Dr. Phil. I don't want to bash him in any way," Williams told E! News last week. "I walked out of treatment because it was a little scripted, I felt. There was no anonymity.”
