Will Discovery Network Strike Gold with 'Sarah Palin's Alaska'?

The former governor of Alaska is reportedly going forward with a deal to host a travelogue-style show about her beloved state

The citizens and wildlife of the North had better get ready for their close-up, as it seems Sarah Palin will have her own reality series, after all -- a show focused on exploring and celebrating her home state. Variety reports that The Discovery Network is about to finalize a deal to broadcast the former governor's new venture, titled Sarah Palin's Alaska.

The series, to be hosted by Palin, would "focus on the characters, traditions and attractions in the U.S.'s northernmost state," according to MTV. And Palin, 46, would reportedly receive upwards of $1 million per episode from Discovery (cable network A&E recently dropped out of the race to add Palin to their lineup).

Palin is no stranger to Discovery -- she appeared in a 2008 documentary on the network called Toughest Race on Earth: Iditarod. The 2008 vice presidential candidate's travelogue-style show would join the network's other outdoors-themed series such as Deadliest Catch, Man vs. Wild, and American Loggers.

Reuters reports that the controversial politician's show would likely be shot in high-definition, and could become "one of the most expensive nature series ever produced."
