'I'm The ex-governor ... get me outta here!': NBC wants Blagoevich for reality TV Show

In the span of a few months, Rod Blagojevich could trade the Illinois governor's office fi the
Costa Rican jungles.
NBC says it wants Blagojevich, who pleaded not guilty to federal racketeering and fraud charges Tuesday, to appear on its upcoming show "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!"
A network statement says 10 celebrities will be dropped into the Costa Rican jungle "to face challenges designed to test their skills in adapting to the wilderness."
But Blagojevich's legal problems could end the venture before it begins.
The ousted governor's bond does not allow him to leave the United States.
An attorney close to his legal defense says Blagojevich is seeking permission from a judge to leave the country to appear on the show.
The lawyer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan was confidential, says Blagojevich could tape the show in June if given permission.
