‘Special Individual’ Sarah Palin’s ‘Alaska’ Airing in November (Video)
August 8, 2010
(ChattahBox)— As reported earlier by ChattahBox, half governor Sarah Palin, inked a deal with Discovery Communication’s TLC network, to host a docudrama, entitled “Alaska.” In it, “drill, baby drill” Palin will apparently shoot Alaskan wildlife from helicopters, after which she will feast on her catch “right next to the mashed potatoes.” Discovery describes the series, produced by survivor creator Mark Burnett, as the story of “Alaska’s powerful beauty,” told by the “state’s proudest daughters.” TLC is promoting the series, headlined by Sarah Palin, as a “special individual” surviving the wilds of Alaska. Well, fans of Sarah will soon get their fill of their very “special” right-wing Fox News media personality. TLC reports that “Alaska” will be invading your living rooms on Nov. 14 at 9 p.m.
Eileen O’Neill, President and General Manager of TLC, said she is pleased with the program.
“The early selects are looking great,” O’Neill said. “It’s become clear it takes a special individual to thrive in Alaska.”
Whatever the quality of the series, Palin is such a divisive and intellectually challenged figure, viewers may tune in for some unintended comic relief. For this reason, Discovery may be in a win-win situation financially, but at what cost to its reputation?
TLC is already planning a cross-promotion event, with “Kate Plus Eight,” as Kate and her brood will travel to Alaska to meet with Palin for an upcoming show.
