Palin Pitches Docudrama

Corrected post

Lynette Rice of Entertainment Weekly breaks the news that Sarah Palin and Mark Burnett have been pitching  the networks on an idea that would be a "planet Earth type look" and Alaska.

Palin — who has been critical of Hollywood starlets opposed to gun control ownership, and industry elites in general — did stand up on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," visiting an Oscar gifting suite and now is shopping an idea around. At what point is she one of them?

Update: Uncertain is to the extent to which Palin will appear on the show. The series will be much more like a Discovery show, and not "Osbournes go North," Politico reports.

A Palin source also confirms to me that it will be Alaska focused and not a reality show.
