Looks like Sarah Palin is coming to the Discovery Channel.
A deal for the former governor and current professional celebrity's reality series, Sarah Palin's Alaska, is expected to be announced by the network in the coming days.
The travel series, produced by Mark Burnett, would feature Alaska's ex-governor giving tours of the state. Hopefully some Todd Palin snow machine shots are featured.
Sarah Palin started shopping around the show this month. Major networks passed, but Discovery showed interest. It could air on Discovery or its sister network, TLC.
Palin is asking $1.2 million per episode for Sarah Palin's Alaska, making it one of the most expensive nature series of all time, and constitute a seemingly ridiculous price, but if someone's willing to pay it, that's the free market for ya.
This is America, don'cha know!
HALF-BAKED ALASKA: Sarah Palin's new nature series might finally make her #1 ... at least on THG's list of most overpaid and overexposed celebrities out there.
** UPDATE: The show will air on TLC and Palin will, indeed, receive $1.2 million per episode. See, she's a regulr hockey mom, just like you!
