(CNN) – Sarah Palin is branching out beyond politics, striking a deal with the Discovery Channel for a program spotlighting her home state of Alaska, People Magazine reports.
According to People, a source with the cable network says the former Alaska governor and Discovery have finally struck a deal after weeks of negotiations that involved several networks. A source told CNN earlier this month that Palin had been pitching a show that would be a "Planet Earth-style" documentary about Alaska.
The Palin source also told CNN of the proposed show: "It's not going to be focused on her family, or in her house, or in Wasilla."
Variety reported Tuesday the show is expected to be called "Sarah Palin's Alaska" and the former Republican vice presidential nominee will likely nab $1 million an episode.
Representatives of the Discovery Channel would not confirm the reports to CNN.
It's all about the $$$ for Palin. Now you know why she as govenor of Alaska.
All you people out there who are so critical
of Palin (Who know very little about her) keep
saying how stupid she is.
Yet every day that goes by you all keep drudging
on with your miserable complaining and all the
while, this little fox of a lady from Alaska just
keeps getting richer and richer and richer and richer.
Looks like there's justice in America after all.
YOU BETCHA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She is not a serious politician. She is all about cashing in on her 15 minutes of fame brought about by being McCain's running mate.
She tries to hold herself as an ordinary working class American. Seems to me she is laughing at all of the fools who think she is the savior of the republican party all the way to the bank.
Good luck Discovery. Count me as a lost viewer if you've got that kind of money to throw around on this piece of Alaska trash.
