According to various reports, Sarah Palin has successfully shopped a reality show to Discovery Communications. The show, called "Sarah Palin's Alaska," will follow the interesting characters, traditions and attractions of the northernmost state, with Palin acting as the host. Palin is expected to get $1 million per episode. I believe a program already existed around a similar premise: Northern Exposure
The Palin show was shopped around with reality show guru, Mark Burnett, but negotiations moved to cable channels when the big networks declined to buy the program. Palin's show would be a among good company with other nature-based shows like "American Loggers," "Man vs. Wild" and "Deadliest Catch," which to my knowledge are all filmed in Alaska.
