‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’ may have second season after all

According to a New York Post report, producer Mark Burnett says he is in discussions with TLC to bring “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” back for a second season next fall.
“The plan would be to shoot this in the summer of 2012,” he tells The Post.

New episodes of the outdoorsy reality series — which shows the former vice-presidential candidate fishing, hunting and dog sledding with her family — would not air until after the November presidential election.

“By the time we edit it, the election will be over,” Burnett says. “But I am sure the election would be mentioned [in the show].”

“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.”
Burnet denied a Hollywood Reporter story from last week to the effect that TLC and other networks had turned down a new $1 million-per-episode spin-off series featuring Todd Palin husband on the professional snowmobiling circuit. Calling that report “totally inaccurate,” Burnett explained that the snowmobiling idea was proposed as only one episode of ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’ rather than a series.
