Via EW As Sarah Palin makes the rounds in Hollywood, more information has surfaced about the show she’s pitching. EW, which first reported the story earlier this week, has learned it’s a travelogue-type documentary from uber-producer Mark Burnett (Survivor) in which the former vice presidential candidate gives viewers an intimate look at her home state of Alaska.
Palin is expected to participate in the show–which is designed to run for at most eight episodes–and present stories about Alaska’s quirky denizens and traditions like the Iditarod. A two-minute video teaser for the show was sent around to the networks which, according to one executive who saw it, includes voiceover statements touting Alaska “the most fascinating state, with the most fascinating statesperson.” The teaser shows sweeping views of the state and even includes a line that says Alaska “is two miles from Russia.”
At least for now, it doesn’t look like her family will participate. ”It’s a love letter, like Palin’s Alaska,” said one executive familiar with her pitch. “There’s nothing political about it.” To read the rest of this story visit EW
