Producer Mark Burnett is reported to be in discussions with TLC to bring back the reality series for a new chapter with plan to film it in summer 2012.
Although she would not run in the upcoming presidential election, Sarah Palin may be kept busy with her work as a reality star. According to New York Post, producer Mark Burnett is now in talks with TLC to bring back "Sarah Palin's Alaska" for a second season.
The reality series, which follows the former Alaska Governor observing nature around the place she is residing, may take the principal photography in summer 2012. However, it will not air until the next fall, after the November presidential election.
"By the time we edit it, the election will be over," so Burnett says as quoted by the site. "But I am sure the election would be mentioned [in the show]." He adds, "It makes perfect sense, because that is what's going on. But it would be again Sarah in Alaska, living with Todd and the family and having adventures juxtaposed with doing her Fox News bits and discussing whatever is going on."
Burnett also brushes off rumor that Palin was shopping a new reality show which focuses on her husband on the professional snowmobiling circuit for $1 million, which led to TLC and other networks to turn down the show. "That is totally inaccurate," Burnett comments on the rumor. "In fact, the idea around snowmobiling was to be part of an episode in 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' - not a series."
