Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is shopping a short television series to network executives, according to a senior aide, but it will not be a reality show “focused on the Palin family.”
A Palin source told POLITICO that during a trip to Los Angeles for a taping of “The Tonight Show,” the former GOP vice presidential nominee met with executives from ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX as well as representatives for A&E and the History Channel.
Palin went to the meeting with Mark Burnett, a reality show producer of CBS’s “Survivor.”
Palin will take part in the series, which the source said will be short and not recurring, but her involvement – whether as a producer, host or anything in between – has yet to be determined.
“She’ll take part in some way, but it really still is in development right now,” the aide said.
The focus of series would be Alaska and will be similar to a nature series on the Discovery Channel.
“It will not be focused on the Palin family, Alaska is going to be the star,” the source said. “It will be more ‘Planet Earth’ than the Osbournes go North.”
The source would not disclose the financial stake Palin is hoping to have in the deal.
