(CBS) - Ted Williams, the homeless man who became an overnight viral sensation with his "golden voice," is getting his own reality show.

The show will reportedly begin filming in two weeks.

His rep did not say whether a network picked up the series, but did add that it is already planning a Season 2, which will showcase other people who deserve a second chance.

The news comes a month after Williams lefta private rehabilitation facility in Texas against medical advice, two weeks after checking in for drug and alcohol dependency. 

He voluntarily entered the rehab following a one-on-one conversation with Dr. Phil McGraw in January.
