Ted Haggard to Debut TLC Reality Show

Ad Feedback

Ted Haggard, the former head of The National Association of Evangelicals, is slated to debut his own reality show on The Learning Channel on Sunday.

Haggard found himself in the national spotlight in 2006 when he was caught having an affair with a male prostitute. The revelation forced him to leave the NAE and his church in Colorado Springs, Colo. 

The new show, titled "Ted Haggard: Scandalous," documents Haggard and his family returning to Colorado Springs last year and starting a new non-denominational church.

The program also explores his highly publicized fall from grace - something the former mega-chuch pastor described as "highly embarrassing and shameful for me."

"I think it's a wonderful story of redemption and resurrection. Although it's embarrassing for me, it's shows why we are believers. I think it's great for people to watch it," Haggard told The Christian Post.

"My story proves that Jesus is Lord, the Word of God works and the blood of Jesus works," he added. "I am the living proof that Jesus is alive."

"Scandalous" is scheduled to air on Jan. 16 at 10 pm. ET.
