Peacock to Blago: Get in 'Here'


Indicted former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has made a deal to star in NBC's upcoming summer reality show "I'm a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!"

"Rod Blagojevich will be a participant on the show pending the court's approval," NBC said Tuesday.

The network's version of the U.K. hit launches June 1.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Blagojevich's attorney told a federal judge Tuesday that he will request to loosen his client's travel restrictions to participate in the show, to be shot in Costa Rica. (partialdiff)
