LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Sarah Palin -- reality TV star?
The former Alaska governor is teaming with uber-producer Mark Burnett (“Survivor”) to shop a reality series about her home state, network sources confirm. Palin and Burnett made the rounds at least three of the major broadcasters (NBC, ABC and Fox) while in Los Angeles for her taping of “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” this week.
Palin and her family would be on-camera in the show, which one executive described as “‘Planet Earth’ meets Alaska meets her family,” referring to Discovery’s high-definition nature hit.
“There’s an awful lot of interest in her,” one executive said. “As a short-order series, it might work. It would depend on what kind of footage you get.”
