Discovery Likely to Land Palin Doc

Fans of Oprah Winfrey’s voiceover work on Discovery’s Life may soon be able to listen to another famous woman describe mating rituals without even having to change the channel: Discovery is leading in the bidding for Sarah Palin’s Alaska, says The Hollywood Reporter. With a reported asking price of $1.2 million per episode, the show would become one of the most expensive nature series ever produced, rivaling the stunning 11-part BBC series, Planet Earth, which set the a record for documentaries with $25 million. Palin’s program would be shot in a similar style as she took viewers on a tour through the Alaskan outdoors.
