Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is scheduled to compete on the new season of "The Celebrity Apprentice."
The former governor will be among 14 contestants including baseball great Darryl Strawberry, singer-actress Cyndi Lauper, TV personality Sharon Osbourne and Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson.
Blagojevich has been charged with scheming to auction off President Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat.
He removed from office, but has denied any wrongdoing.
The new season of "The Celebrity Apprentice," hosted by Donald Trump, is set to air March 14 on NBC.
