Not long ago, I mentioned that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was trying to sell an idea for a reality show about her native Alaska in which she would star.
Palin is asking for between $1 million-$1.5 million per episode. No, really.
If that amount sounds ilke a lot, even for TV, then you’re absolutely right. To put it in perspective, Charlie Sheen of CBS’s Two and a Half Men, the highest paid actor on network television, reportedly brings home $875,000 per episode.
A&E and Discovery networks have expressed interest, but neither has posted a bid for Palin’s costly travelog.
The major broadcast networks, I am happy to report, all passed on the project. (And you thought there was no hope for network TV!)
