Sources are saying today that Discovery Communications has edged out rival A&E Network in acquiring Sarah Palin’s new Alaska reality nature program. An agreement could be announced in the next few days.
What’s unclear right now is what network Discovery might decide to taint with the new series; though mom-friendly channel TLC is being assumed.
As we mentioned earlier, Palin is asking for about $1.2 million per episode — which would make it one of the most expensive nature documentaries ever filmed. The high-definition program will be shot in a style similar to “Life” and “Planet Earth” and will feature Palin acting as a guide to the Alaskan outdoors. No, really.
Stay tuned for the impending doom announcement soon.
