Will Sarah Palin and her family be starring in a new reality television series? Not quite, a source close to the former Alaska governor tells CNN.
While Palin and famed reality TV producer Mark Burnett are in New York and Los Angeles this week meeting with six networks about a new series - a story first reported Wednesday by Entertainment Weekly - the source emphasized that the show would be a "Planet Earth-style" documentary about Alaska.
Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, will likely be featured in the show, the source said. But the source added that "it's not going to be focused on her family, or in her house, or in Wasilla.
"She is just going to use her name to help produce and promote the show," said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
The source said Palin is following up on her promise last summer, when she resigned from the governor's office, to find new ways to shine a light on her home state.
"This is not 'The Osbournes Go North'," said the source, referencing the MTV reality show that featured rock singer Ozzy Osbourne's family. "This is not a reality show based on the Palins."Source: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/03/04/palin-pitching-reality-tv-show/?hpt=Sbin&fbid=20XIVNyjIF0
