Discovery Communications made the official announcement this morning that they have bought Sarah Palin's new reality show, "Sarah Palin's Alaska" (working title).
The deal is for eight episodes of the show, which was initially described as a sort of travelogue of the state of Alaska hosted by Palin, but Discovery is now touting it as a show about Palin and also about Alaska. What exactly does that mean? Your guess is as good as mine.
The show is executive-produced by Mark Burnett of "Survivor" and "Apprentice" fame.
Discovery did not say when the show is expected to debut, but did say it will air on their TLC channel. TLC was once the home of "Jon & Kate Plus 8," and now airs shows such as "Little People, Big World," "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant," "Toddlers & Tiaras," "19 Kids & Counting," "Addicted," and "Cake Boss."
Since Palin resigned as governor of Alaska last summer, she has also signed on as an occasional contributor to Fox News. The former governor isn't the only Palin getting into showbiz. Her daughter Bristol will make her acting debut (playing herself) on ABC Family's "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" later this summer.
