Wonder what you would find if you frisked former Governor Sarah Palin and the Discovery Channel?
Answer: They are close to making a deal on a new travelogue show.
The Washington Post reports:
After trying unsuccessfully to sell to the broadcast networks a travelogue series about Alaska that would feature none other than SARAH PALIN, reality-TV king Mark Burnett appears to be in negotiations with Discovery Communications about placing the Palin “reality series” there.
Discovery is expected to announce soon that it’s getting into bed with the former Alaska governor for this limited-run series.
Earlier this month, Burnett, best known for executive-producing CBS’s “Survivor” and NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” shopped the show around in Los Angeles, with Palin, to the broadcast networks for a reported price of about $1 million an episode, which is a lot of lettuce for a salmon-fishing and moose-skinning travelogue.
The broadcast networks appear to have passed because the show is not called “The Palins,” and it is not about Palin, her unwed daughter Bristol and baby Tripp, her potshot-taking nearly son-in-law Levi, her hot-looking husband Todd, and her baby with Down syndrome whom we all fell in love with during the 2008 presidential race, Trig.
Sorry liberals, as much as you would like to see a reality show based on Sarah Palin, it is not going to happen. Of course, I mean it in the sense that you would just use it to fuel your unintelligent agenda of demonizing anyone with an opposing viewpoint.
Personally, I find this to be a decent career move. Although this will place Palin outside of the political scene for a little while, it should help portray her and Alaska in a positive light that most Americans have not seen before. If a deal is actually finalized, the travelogue should be interesting and I will probably end up DVR’ing it. Let’s just hope it will be under 12 or so episodes, because more than that might be a little too much, haha.
