Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor, will take the viewing public around her state in a new Discovery “travelogue”, said Hollywood trade journal Variety.
Palin will reportedly star in the new series as a tour guide. “Sarah Palin’s Alaska will center on interesting characters, traditions and attractions in the 49th state — with the ex-VP candidate as a guide,” Variety reported in its online edition Tuesday.
Discovery Communications is yet to make a statement on the new show, but Variety noted that Palin had a brief cameo in Discovery Channel’s 2008 documentary on Iditarod — a sled race in which her husband Todd competes. The new show “is believed to have fetched more than one million dollars an episode — a hefty price tag for a freshman unscripted cable skein,” Variety said.
