Sarah Palin is looking to produce a reality show about Todd Palin's life as a snow machine racer. Astonishingly, the reception among networks so far has been ... icy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Palin and producer Mark Burnett are pitching a show that would turn the camera on Todd Palin's winning career on the circuit.

The price tag and subject matter have driven bidders away thus far, though.

Discovery Networks, the company that the former governor's last show on TLC, paid over $1 million per episode for the rights to Sarah Palin's Alaska, airing in 2010.

Now, Discovery is unwilling to pay that price, as is A&E.

Sarah Palin's Alaska debuted to massive ratings, with network record audience of five million, but fell precipitously, including a 40 percent drop by its second episode.

The show certainly generated buzz, with her shooting animals, acting all folksy, hosting Kate Gosselin and her children and so forth. But the buzz ultimately waned.

It was cancelled after its first and only season. Having declined to run for president, and with little interest from the reality TV world, what WILL Sarah Palin do next?

Is Sarah Palin bound for the Emmy Awards red carpet? Stranger things have happened. Well, maybe not, but her show was submitted for consideration.

TLC submitted Sarah Palin’s Alaska for consideration in four categories: Outstanding Reality, Cinematography, Picture Editing, and Music Composition.

The Mark Burnett-produced show delivered sweeping frontier views of America's 49th state in all its glory. It also featured Sarah Palin shooting stuff.

The show attracted millions of viewers and considerable buzz. The reality bar has been set quite high for Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey on their new show.

Should the highly-rated TLC show score a nomination and actually win in the reality category, Sarah Palin would be eligible to receive a golden statue.

Emmy nominations will be announced July 14, with the awards doled out September 18. Expect Palin to hint at a non-presidential run on both dates.

Those of you hoping for a second season of Sarah Palin's Alaska need psychiatric help will be disappointed to learn TLC didn't renew the thing. Darn/awesome!

Despite big-time ratings and buzz, tonight's two-hour finale of Sarah Palin’s Alaska appears to be the show's last episode, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Hey, more time to "target" politicians like Gabrielle Giffords, right Sarah?

Insiders admit that Palin seemed to enjoy doing the show more than she expected, in spite of some bad press and having to converse with Kate Gosselin.

But a second season could've been interpreted as a sign that she had no plans for a Presidential run in 2012, so decided to bail and keep her options open.

TLC would surely have welcomed her back, but it was not to be.

Somehow we expect she'll be okay and find other arenas in which to bash Michelle Obama over encouraging child nutrition ... the nerve of that woman.

Follow the jump for "highlights" from the first and final season ...

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.
