Report: A&E and Discovery Interested in Sarah Palin Reality Series
A&E Networks and Discovery Communications are both interested in acquiring Sarah Palin's new reality series, according to Variety.
Tentatively titled Sarah Palin's Alaska, the series has been compared to documentary hit Planet Earth. In the show, which will be produced by Mark Burnett, the former governor gives guided tours of her native state, including trips to a gold mine and visits with local fishermen. It's been reported that Palin's family could also make appearances on the series as well.
