Because TLC didn't have enough drama with the dissolution of Jon & Kate Plus 8, the TV network recently acquired Sarah Palin's Alaska, a “documentary series about the remarkable Governor Palin and her home state of Alaska.” Mark Burnett, the producer of Survivor and other reality shows, will be the executive producer on this eight-episode travelogue, according to The New York Times.
We can only hope that a visit to the North Slope will be accompanied by “drill, baby, drill” chants and that Palin will take us to her elusive Russia-viewing spot. But what we're really gunning to see is her heli-hunting technique. Filming has yet to start, but is the controversy surrounding Palin's project already rolling in? You betcha!
