Sarah Palin’s reality show finds home on TLC


It’s official: Discovery Communications has acquired “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” an eight-part documentary series that will premiere on TLC.

“Our family enjoys Discovery’s networks,” Palin said in an official release. “I look forward to working with (producer) Mark (Burnett) to bring the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans.”

“TLC is grounded in great storytelling, strong characters, and passionate audiences drawn to extraordinary people doing extraordinary things. We are confident (this show) will be another compelling television event,” said Eileen O’Neill, president and general manager of TLC.

But will audiences tune in? Reality programs and films featuring exquisite nature footage tend to attract decent-sized audiences. Palin’s presence will alienate half of one audience as it appeals to half of a different audience.

Though actual figures were not released, The Wraps cites one report that says Discovery was willing to pay up to $1 million per episode for the series. It’s unclear, as of now, when the show will air.
