Executive Producer Mark Burnett and Sarah Palin have been working the ho stroll hard trying to sell her reality show to the highest bidder. All of the major networks passed on the show, but apparently both the Discovery Channel and A&E put offers on the table. Variety reports that A&E pulled out yesterday, which means Sarah’s going to sit right next to Mike Rowe at the Discovery Channel’s holiday party! That will be Mike’s dirtiest job yet.
The Discovery Channel will ride in on a chariot pulled by the four horsemen and make the announcement at their upfront presentation in NYC in a couple of days. The rumor is that Sarah’s whoring paid off, because Discovery bought the show for $1 million an episode.
Sarah’s reality show will be more like Planet Earth and less like Jersey Shore. Sarah Palin’s Alaska will follow Sarah as she introduces viewers to the traditions and attractions of Alaska. It’s going to be hilarious watching the bears flinch and make the sign of the cross when Sarah comes around with her cameras. And I can’t wait for the episode where Sarah and Sherry Johnston teach us how to start our own OxyContin ring. I’m keeping a page in my notepad blank for that one.
