(CNN) – Sarah Palin's much anticipated reality show will hit the airwaves next November, just days after the midterm elections when the political world begins to look toward the 2012 presidential race.
"Sarah Palin's Alaska" – the show that has been billed as a "Planet Earth-style" documentary about the state – will premiere at 9 p.m. November 14 on TLC, network president Eileen O'Neill said at the Television Critics Association press tour, according to the trade publication Broadcast and Cable.
Little is known about the show besides the fact it is being spearheaded by "Survivor" creator Mark Burnett.
A Palin source told CNN in April that the show "is not going to be focused on her family, or in her house, or in Wasilla."
Instead, it appears the state of Alaska will be as much the focus of the program as the former vice presidential nominee.
"It's become clear it takes a special individual to thrive in Alaska," O'Neill said.
Variety reported earlier this year Palin stands to receive upwards of $1 million an episode.
please go away

How come nobody said anything when BO wrote two books, with not very many accomplishments – and made a lot of money.
BECAUSE HE DIDN'T QUIT IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS ONLY TERM TO DO IT!
Hopefully, all of those who think she isn't too bright will stay away from the show and not help its ratings watching for a train wreck. You betcha!
I don't like Palin because she is a professional fear-monger, but I bet her ratings will be sky high for at least a few weeks due to her polarizing celebrity status.
"It's become clear it takes a special individual to thrive in Alaska"
I think I will flip my Northern Exposure dvd's in for an evening if that's all this turkey is about......
Another reason to hate reality TV.
"Who is Sarah Palin?"
She is a journalism major who drifted into politics because she is too dumb to do anything else.
Can't wait to miss it.
Sarah Palin with a show about wildlife is like Charles Manson with a show about mentoring young women.
I was WAITING ON THIS...!!!
Cap it ALL Off and reveal your self Sarah. Hubby already knows what time it is............
Your son has issues, but you are running around the country trying to grab money. Your Husband won't come out in public, because DUDE knows a Circus when he see's one........
Your Daughter is having open SEASON between her brain and legs as well as her purse.
Now do you actually think that I would want YOUR advise?? Wisdom?? Experience??
Woman, You must be smoking weed, crack or meth .............. Please........ Sit your happy anus DOWN !!!!
She doesn't need a "reality show", she needs REALITY CHECK! That and an acquaintance with the truth...which she probably wouldn't recognize.
How can anybody take Palin seriously?
Wow, the fear of this woman by democrats is amazing. It's not hard to figgure out why though, she stands for everything good about America; freedom, family, God, responsibility, patriotism, helping others, being a beacon of strengh to the world, fighting for what is right in the world. All things that democrats despise, or apparently fear.
Awesome! I can't wait! She will undoubtfully say enough stupid things she cannot deny that she will have zero chance of getting to the white house.
Wow this lady is slime.Yet she's a hell of a hustler.She get rich people to part with their money easy.What the hell is wrong with them. Loons.
Great, more white trash on TV. Just what we need.
Whats it called trailer trash pimps cnn
You have to be kidding.....she's been denying reality for years!!!!
She sure IS a "SPECIAL" individual......no offence to all the 'special needs' people out there!
@HAP – thanks for that information.
Where is this story, with the video, on CNN. The real uncut uncensored trailer trash family at play. Now we know what that daughter of hers is good for besides having babies out of wedlock.
We are already subjected daily to the Palin "Reality Show" and everything in her life is a lie or a failure. Americans are sick to death of this moron. Really think any sane person would listen to this idiot on purpose?? The show will be a huge failure and Palin will quit after 2 episodes anyway. She does not know the meaning of the word "commitment".
So, what will be done on this show? Will it be only outdoors material or will be it a political talk show as well?
Wow! Burnett and Pailin associated with the same show! I am sure I will be something else that night....
Creepy, creepy woman. Does she ever wash her hair? Have any pics of her when she was pregnant with Trigg? Didn't think so. They don't exist.
A subtitle could be .... "101 things to shoot from a helicopter"!
I have read a lot of the negative comments that say how stupid or ignorant Sarah Palin is. Do any of the idiots that write this stuff ever proof read their own comments? Most of it is like trying to read what a second grader might have written. Try getting an actual education before you call someone stupid.
I can't wait until they show the episode where she shoots wolves from a helicopter!
