Report: A&E and Discovery interested in Sarah Palin reality series
The cable network is close to acquiring Palin's reality series, Sarah Palin's Alaska, and is expected to announce an agreement in the coming days, sources told the trade paper. It is unclear if the series would air on the Discovery flagship station or its sister network, TLC.
The travelogue series, which will be produced by Mark Burnett, would feature the former governor giving guided tours of her home state. Palin, 46, started shopping around the project earlier this month. After broadcast networks passed, Discovery and A&E each set their sights on the series.
