Wow. That network is full of surprises!
Ted Haggard: Scandalous is a one-hour special for TLC, but if it does well, it could lead to a full fledged series.
If you don't remember, Haggard was the head of the National Association of Evangelicals, which had 30 million followers across 45,000 churches, but it all came tumbling down when he was caught having an affair with a male prostitute and using crystal meth.
The former pastor has been working with his wife and five kids to rebuild their lives. It follows them as they build a new ministry in Colorado Springs, the same city he left after the scandal.
“My family and I endured the darkest hours imaginable in the public spotlight, and have spent the last four years fighting and struggling to rebuild our lives, our faith and our family. Showing the world the new chapter of our lives will hopefully inspire others to find their own path to overcome their struggles and embrace the power of acceptance. The church is open to all, even those who have committed the darkest sins.”
Wow. The special airs on January 16th.
