'Sarah Palin's Alaska' Reality Nature Series May Head To Discovery
Not surprisingly, there’s some massive interest in Sarah Palin’s nature-themed reality television show about Alaska. Discovery Communications and A&E Networks are apparently the top bidders for the program — which would focus on the ex-governor giving a guided tour of her native Alaska.
Obviously, this one is all about the potential ratings — since linking Sarah Palin to environmental conservation is laugh-out loud tenuous. Maybe the show would work better as a comedy, inserting a laugh track under every quip about how much she loves nature and all its inhabitants.
Speaking of hilarity, Palin reportedly wants between $1-$1.5 million per episode — a huge amount for a freshman cable series.
“It will sell,” predicted one insider to Reuters. “One way or another.” And that’s the sad truth.
