TLC, the cable channel that brought you the Gosselins, will soon be the home of Sarah Palin.
The network announced Thursday (March 25) that it has landed the rights to “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” an eight-part series that will explore the natural wonders of the state as well as — we’re quoting from the TLC press release here — “the remarkable [ex-]Governor Palin.”
“Survivor” and “The Apprentice” producer Mark Burnett is executive producing the show — which, by the way, TLC is calling a documentary and not a reality series. There’s no premiere date yet, and the title could change.
]]>would air on Discovery Channel, but instead parent company Discovery Communications decided the best place for it was TLC, whose programming roster runs the gamut from “19 Kids and Counting” to “Cake Boss” to “Toddlers and Tiaras.”
“Our family enjoys Discovery’s networks,” Palin says in a statement. “I look forward to working with Mark to bring the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans.”
Burnett says he “can’t think of anyone more compelling than Sarah Palin to tell the story of Alaska. I’m thrilled to reunite with Discovery on this project, which brings together one of the most fascinating figures of our time with one of the most wondrous places on earth.”
