We heard TLC was giving this dumb broad Sarah Palin and her family at reality show… but we guess the network couldn’t even trust her to do that right because now they’re saying it’s not exactly a reality show and it’s not exactly about Palin. Pop the hood for details.
TLC is the new home for a reality show featuring Palin and her family. Details about the show, which will be produced by Mark Burnett, whose credits include the CBS hit “Survivor,” are sketchy. The show has an eight-episode commitment and is expected to premiere later this year at the earliest.
The program likely will be as much about Alaska as it is about Palin and her family. With a political career still in the offing, it seems unlikely that she will open the door that wide on the day-to-day life of her family.
[Updated at 10:51 a.m. Discovery stressed that this show, indeed, will be about more about Alaska than about Palin and her family although she will have an active role on the show. The network is positioning the series more as documentary than reality show.
In the announcement for the show, Palin said her family enjoyed Discovery and that she looked “forward to working with Mark to bring the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans.”]
No price for the show was released, but reports of a license fee of more than $1 million per episode are over the top, a person close to the project said.
We can’t understand why networks keep pushing this dumb broad on us. First Faux News, now TLC?
SMH! Discovery/TLC you were doing good with “Life,” please don’t fu*k it all up now with the Moronic Moose Hunter.
