Sarah Palin Nears Deal for Discovery Channel Show

     Rumors that 2008 Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin would star in a reality show are turning out to be true - although it won't be the Jessica Simpson type show some were hoping for.  The former Alaska Governor is reportedly nearing a deal with Discovery Channel to air "Sarah Palin's Alaska", a Planet Earth style series exploring her home state.  The series is expected to run for at most eight episodes with the reported price of $1 million a show.

     Palin is already signed on as a Fox News contributor and is set to host periodic episodes of Fox's "Real American Stories", which the network describes as, "a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape," in 2010.

     Palin's foray into television should turn into television ratings gold.  But, as Jimmy Fallon put it, "Any reality show about Sarah Palin will have to compete with that other reality show about Sarah Palin: the news."
