Exclusive: Sarah Palin shopping Alaska TV docudrama with Mark Burnett

sarah-palinImage Credit: Jim Watson/AFP/Getty ImagesSarah Palin, TV producer? Multiple sources confirm that Palin and uber-reality show producer Mark Burnett have been making the rounds in Hollywood this week to pitch a TV docudrama about Alaska. One source called it a “planet-Earth type look” at Palin’s home state. The former candidate for the vice presidency was seen leaving ABC today with Burnett, and an insider confirmed that she met with reality topper Mike Darnell yesterday at Fox (where she and her family ended the day by visiting American Idol. Palin stayed in the green room).  She also stopped by CBS today and plans to meet with NBC Universal TV Chairman Jeff Gaspin tomorrow.

When asked about the meeting, one executive quipped, “she’s pitching a sequel to Commander in Chief,” a reference to the ABC drama from Rod Lurie that starred Geena Davis as the first female president.

Palin began her week in Los Angeles by appearing on The Tonight Show, where she told Leno that her previous dream was to be to become a sportscaster – and then she told some jokes. She also took advantage of Oscar week by visiting gift suites.

    Oh NOOOOO!!!! What does she know about Alaska? SHE QUIT!! and all those publicity shots??
    She does not know when to stop looking and acting stupid. IMO

    • Carli Banks

      She is an INSPIRATION to women all over AMERICA. All you liberal bloggers living in your parent’s basement are losers.

      • Simone Peach

        Yes, Sarah Palin is actually a very savy politician. I believe she will be the first woman elected president. SP 2012!!!

      • Paul

        She inspires women to not educate themselves, be self righteous hypocrites and w h o r e out their children to become famous. She’s disgusting.

      • Brenda in AK

        Oh, yeah, she’s an inspiration all right.

        She touts family values yet her teenage daughter gets knocked up.

        She travels 3000 miles to give birth in Alaska when she should have remained in Texas as travel was dangerous to the baby.

        She hates minorities – her own father even testified to that fact – and she only believes in “her America”.

        She is a hypocrite.
        She is an ego-maniac.
        She is a quitter.
        She is also mentally unstable. And I know what I am talking about. Trust me.

        Anybody who thinks Sarah Palin would be a wonderful president must not love America.

      • joe

        YEAH!!!!!! I want Sarah to become president!!
        I’m a Canadian, I’d love to see how much she can screw up America due to her insane lack of any sort of intelligence, then laugh my arse off at the American’s who vote for her, oh how that would make my day, no years!!
        On topic, who would watch a docudrama about alaska? pretty landscapes and oil is all Alaska offers and those items would get real old real quick, the only real excitement is the crap fishing (deadliest catch is amazing). Maybe a 1 hour special is all it’s worth but that would still probably tank.

      • phil

        Brenda, we all hate minorities, what are you, an eskimo? Joe, you’re Canadian, no one cares what you think. Your country is insignificant, you hockey puck.

      • Maddie

        Look how they spew the same old insults and lies in the typical Alinsky-inspired manner?

      • sarah

        She’s an INSPIRATION to my dog! Except my dog is more intelligent.

      • LOUIS PEREZ

        YOU RETARD

      • terry

        If she’s an inspiration to women, I’m going gay. And not a closeted gay like a Republican senator, but full on gay. Seriously though, when will the Palintards let this woman go? I’d love to put her, the jersey shore people, the kardashians, kate and jon all in a celebrity survivor, then when we’ve got them all secluded on an island, sneak out in the middle of the night so they’d never be heard from again.

      • Carm

        I actually live in a high rise. At the top of it. And S Palin is just not the brightest bulb in the box so why listen to anything she has to say.

      • james hamlin

        She has got to be the biggest moron ever thrust on the big stage, other than she is milking it for all it’s worth. I hope she is the GOP nominee until 2020, so that we won’t have another dumb GOP president to screw up the country ever again

      • sam

        The biggest morons in politics – Carter, Dukakis, Gore, Kerry, Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Edwards, and Dean, remember him, “We’re going to Texas, Idaho, Yippeeeeeeeeeee”

      • frayedcat

        Umm, yeah, “like locusts” she waz

      • TheJudoBoxer

        So…funding wars with Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and anybody that helps “terrorist” is not tough enough. We also need to fund a war with Iran as well, while at the same time giving almost $1 trillion of our tax money to the banks and the Federal Reserve (who won’t tell us where the money went and why billions of it ended up missing) and cutting billions in funding to education on a state by state basis while the dollar is devaluing. All while keeping American citizens to busy in-fighting with each other about which side is right, so that they are to busy to have any real sort of conversation. THIS is the solution. OK.

      • Fd

        Sam Phil Carli you are a major joke

      • gina

        This liberal, sitting in her half million dollar home in an affluent suburb, says don’t assume all liberals are living in their parent’s basement. Palin is about as inspirational as a door knob.

      • ckale

        I’m not inspired by her. Well, ok – she inspires me to be nothing like her. Which lets me be smart, educated, well-spoken, and not an idiot. Thanks, Sarah! Please go away now.

    • Maddie

      She knows alot more about Alaska than you do. You should like publicity shots, you read hollywood insider, and I am presuming TMZ.

        shaking up the extreme left.

    • KEH

      Why would I listen to a Liberal.. any more.. recent test showed Obama voters thinks its funny to make fun of the disabled.. Liberals have become the nasty side of America. Sites Like the KOS and posts here prove it.You got your guy in the WH and your all still angery and nasty what’s up with that?

      • Fd

        Keh what are you a joke

    • Ron

      Can you even tie your shoes by yourself…you are a fool.

    • John

      “What does she know about Alaska?”?!! NOW, who’s sounding stupid?

      • ba’al

        not stupid-Alaskans do NOT act like her.

    • Max D

      Obama is a complete DISASTER & MORON. 1 year of stuttering, stumbling, screw-ups, 100% incompetence and it is confirmed: OBAMA is a slow witted idiot. NOT EVEN A LITTLE INTELLIGENT.

      obama dolts please keep up the attacks on Sarah Palin. We will defend her until the end and beat down you pieces for garbage.

      If you voted for the DISASTER = your opinion is meaningless

      Sarah Palin keeps hitting home runs with everything she does and support for her is growing and growing.

      The media tricked America into electing the fool obama and the attacks by obama scum is making most Americans to take a 2nd look at this remarkable women.

      Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on ME.

      • ron

        Obama never ran a company, never ran a military unit, never ran an executive office in government, the only thing he’s run is his mouth. How come Obama doesn’t give press conferences? Because he is stupid and he doesn’t have a clue what he is doing. He makes Jimmy Carter look like George Washington. The Democrats are in complete meltdown.

    • She quit her job as governor mid term to go on a book tour

      So why are you trusting her to finish a full term as president?

    • jared4ever

      She’s a stupid, money-hungry bottom feeder who represents the absolute worst that America tries to force on the rest of the world…God & guns.

  • Joel

    Go Sarah Palin! :D

    • Katyo

      Yes – GO AWAY.

      • SDTim

        Far, FAR away!

      • Maddie

        Oh she will be traveling abroad to spread her message, visit our troops, you know, things a good President should do.

      • joseph

        Why don’t the people who don’t like her go away? What’s the point of hanging around sites that talk about people you hate? It’s like a sad obsession people have. I would be embarrassed to be so publicly hateful.

      • Fd

        Joe what are you a moron

    • Sally in Chicago

      She’s going to be one of the richest women in TV….she’s got a taste for power and she’s going to ride that bull all the way to the jackpot.

    • Maddie

      2012 can’t come soon enough

      • Kristen

        If she does become president in 2012, I hope that crackpot theory on the world ending happens!

      • GGG

        I will move to Australia, if SP becomes president.

      • joe

        Best news I’ve heard today. Will you move even if she doesn’t win? Can you move now and take your family with you?

    • sarah

      Go AWAY Sarah Palin, you mean.

    • joseph

      good for her.

      • Fd

        Not good for us

  • Sue1

    Anything to stay in the limelight.

    • Maddie

      You liberals help keep her there.

      • Anna

        How? We’re not the ones watching her show on Fox “news” network and we’re not buying her book. Are you saying that conservatives love Sarah Palin and keep her in the limelight simply as a reaction to us liberals?

  • Chris

    There goes her presidency run. You don’t go from reality tv to the WH.

    • mike

      You dont think the Octo-mom or Kate Gosselin should enter the primaries?

      • tad

        Looks like another insecure female is jealous of sarah!

      • Dora

        tad is an example of a delusional Palin supporter who is childish like the fangirls of Miley Cyrus/Jonas Brothers/High School Musical/Twilight who accuse you of jealousy just because someone thinks their crap. Get your head out of your @ss

      • phil

        Dora, you sound like a very bitter and jealous lesbo…You are probably middle aged and alone, fat, ugly and unsucessful and poor. You probably have not had sex since the Carter administraion.

      • Desmond’s constant

        phil, you sound like you got a microscopic worm for a penis. Just accept the fact that you will never be able to please a woman and you probably won’t have such anger issues.

      • terry

        Phil’s just a bigot, which puts him right in the middle of Palin’s core audience.

      • Desmond’s constant

        Terry, let’s not ignore the fact that phil has sh*t for brains, which also makes him Palin’s core audience.

      • phil

        And Desmond’s constant, you’re gay which makes you a good Democrat

      • Desmond’s constant

        phil, your utter obsession with homosexuality is alarming. It’s pretty obvious that your deepest hidden desire is to play wife to some big muscular hairy guy. Will you just go and do it already?

      • phil

        Truth hurts, doesn’t it Shirley?

      • Ivan

        phil: Is Shirley what you like the leather daddies to call you at your hometown S&M bar?

      • phil

        Hi Ivan, another homo.

    • Sally in Chicago

      That’s right. She’d rather have the money than the office.

      • Jeanie

        She quit both her elected offices. She is a joke and should cash in wherever she can.

      • Maddie

        She’s more unrestrained and effective as Citizen Sarah and it just burns you liberals up.

      • Gilly

        Well, I’d rather have money than a political office too! There are so many, many, many things I can blame her for, but wanting money is not one of them!

      • UncleWalty

        You, the word among Republican party insiders (like Bill Kristol & Joe Scarborough) is that the GOP hates Palin as much anyone else. She’s a disaster waiting to happen, and even THEY know it.

      • sam

        Obama is a disaster that HAS happened! Demos are gonna get slammed in November. This is gonna be a good year!

      • UncleWalty

        I wouldn’t get too excited about November. Election Day is 8 months away. That’s a LIFETIME in modern politics

      • sam

        Hey, how’s Rangel doing? I thought Pelosi said in ’06 she was going to get rid of corruption in Washington? Another hollow Democratic promise to just get elected. She also promised to end the war in Iraq. I see Guantanamo is still open for business. One hollow promise after another. Democrats suck! And the electorate never holds them accountable. Dispicable! Come on November!

      • Fd

        Sam you are a joke

      • phil

        Answer the question Fd. Can’t argue with the truth, huh, dumbass!

    • Veronica

      Typically not. Although nothing in this country would surprise me anymore.

    • David

      You never know… Reagan did Bedtime for Bonzo, then went on to be President. Never underestimate leadership by lowest common denominator.

  • Katyo

    This woman is pathetic and I very much wish she’d go away. Anything for money and fame, eh Sarah?

    • theresa

      Just like Al Gore!

  • BJ

    Can she move into a cave and stay there? Humanity will be better off forgetting she existed.

    • joseph

      or you could.

    • SLB

      And then seal the cave. I just wish this ignorant dipsh*t would just go away. Can we please put an end to her fifteen minutes?

  • Chris Shifty

    While she would like to be President to make changes she wants, she knows it would be ugly and no fun to be President.

    Better off going to the celebrity route. $$$

  • The Voice of a Generation

    What a Con-Artist!!!

    • Sherry

      That’s Trig’s grandma for you. No way that’s her kid.

      • Maddie

        impossible due to dates

      • Gilly

        It’s time for bed, Bristol! You can stop defending mommy now!

      • Possum Dearie

        Batshit insane comment of the day!

    • theresa

      Again-just like Al Gore!

      • my dog is smarter than Sarah

        wow – we finally found someone less intelligent than Sarah Palin and her name is theresa. Gore didn’t quit his job to financially prosper like the whore named Sarah Palin.

      • Fd

        Theresa you are a moron

  • Devin LaComb

    Please America, take back your tart. We do not need her up here. Our gold medals have been nice. USA!USA!USA! cough*burt*poo-poo

    • Maddie

      grow up

      • Fd

        you grow up

  • (fu)king christ

    Such a media whore.. and what’s worse is that there’s idiots out there eating her words up and buying her idiotic image.. she’s worse the Bush

    • tad

      That is not a very Christian attitude.

      • Dora

        She’s not a real Christian and neither are you

      • ks

        @Dora-true-ever see her video of her “church” voo doo sessions

      • KiKi

        Not everyone is “christian” – what a stupid comment

      • Kay

        Tad do you know any history at all? Actually, that’s a very Christian attitude.

    • Maddie

      You liberals help keep her in the media (especially the ones in the Alaska Mafia).

      • Anna

        Again, I ask, “How?” We’re not the ones watching her show on Fox “news” network and we’re not buying her book. Are you saying that conservatives love Sarah Palin and keep her in the limelight simply as a reaction to us liberals?

    • frayedcat

      But — that’s why everyone sez they like her, cuz ‘she’s just like them’…so you saying we mostly unpleasant-like hereabouts in the US

  • bunker

    She’ll be on Dancing With the Stars in a couple years.

    • KiKi

      That would be perfect for this tragic pathetic cow.

      • joseph

        I can’t help but think that all the negative comments are really people projecting their own inadequacies onto her. It’s really sad. Otherwise, why would they care?

      • Anna

        Because, joseph, she is offensive. She implies that, if you disagree with her extreme-right views, you are somehow a lesser American. She spouts controversial statements to get attention, avoids any calm and rational debate by insisting that she won’t be treated fairly and has used her VP candidacy simply to gain fame and money. She’s made a mockery of our political process and our democracy. She needs to go away.

      • sfranny

        Wow I love how all the women just hate her because shes successful and attractive. Maybe you pigs should put the pint of ice cream and get on a treadmill! Bunch of ugly lib haters!!

      • BJ

        ^ You call that attractive? She’s not that good looking and she’s even uglier on the inside.

      • Anna

        So, sfranny, let me see if I can follow your logic…

        1. Your opinions about people and issues are objectively right and good.

        2. You like Sarah Palin, approve of her positions and strategies, and find her attractive.

        3. Palin is objectively likeable and attractive. Her opinions and strategies are objectively right and good.

        4. The opinions of all females are shaped entirely by how they look, how much they weigh, and how successful they are.

        5. All females offended by Palin are ugly, fat and unsuccessful.

        Got it.

    • SDTim

      I heard they asked her for this season. LOL

      • Maddie

        I can understand that, she is very much in demand these days, but she wouldn’t accept their invitation.

      • Anna

        I think there is very little Sarah Palin wouldn’t do for attention.

    • Maddie

      She’ll be dancing with the stars all right when she is elected into the WH

      • Anna

        Thankfully, there simply aren’t enough extreme-right people in this country to make that happen. There aren’t enough extreme-left people to get Rachel Maddow elected either. Both parties need to focus on finding centrist candidates.

      • Fd

        palin is a joke

  • Hudson

    Gag me with a spoon. What does Sarah Palin know about the environment? Planet Earth is amazing celebration of all that is nature. Don’t forget that Palin has supported destroying the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) for a few barrels of oil. What a desperate hypocrite. She’ll do anything to try to be relevant.

    • tad

      Again name calling, I bet you didn’t even graduate high school…

      • KiKi

        Palin barely did either, Tad, you self loathing closet queen

      • Hudson

        Tad, Tad, Tad. What a limited mind you have. If you don’t agree with someone insult their intelligence. Which is very funny because usually Republicans and Conservatives try to insult people by mocking how much education they have.

      • Maddie

        Funny… Kiki and Hudson, you regressive liberals constantly attack Palin’s intelligence. Intelligence isn’t based upon where you attend college, look at all the elitists in D.C. who are failing our country.

      • Maddie

        from some of the immature comments I’ve read on here bashing Palin, it appears that you could be correct, Tad.

      • Fd

        Maddie you are a joke

    • Yes

      I’m curious what the angle is on this too. No more hunting from a helicopter I hope. She has gone completely Hollywood it seems.

      • Maddie

        she never did hunt from a helicopter, just another delusion from the small minded.

      • Yes

        No, her abilities to run the country are the delusions of the idiot. A majority of the country does not believe she is able to run the country. Deal with it and move on, it seems she has since she’s shopping around tv shows now.

      • frayedcat

        True – she is mostly a pretend hunter – just poses with the gun mostly doesnt actually go out and hunt

    • SDTim

      Well she knows that “global warming is junk science” LOL THAT should qualify her for an environmental show, don’t you think? I had such respect for John McCain — before he inflicted this nim-wit on the U.S. Next thing you know, she’ll be doing a geography show because she “can see Russia from her house.” LOL

      • Maddie

        Global warming is junk science by climatologists who altered data to cause a global warming fear, as evidenced by their e-mail correspondence.

      • Gilly

        I’m curious, Maddie. Even if you don’t agree with the data behind climate change, what is wrong with taking care of the environment? Almost all of Alaska’s GDP comes from either petrol or seafood. Frivolously wasting those resources is disaster for the people of the state. And for me, because I hate farmed salmon.

      • Possum Dearie

        I’m curious where Palin’s record says she hates the environment. As Governor of Alaska, she introduced a statewide green energy plan that would get the utilities to produce 50% of their power through renewable sources. (Obama, btw, has suggested 25% by 2025.) Greenpeace said this plan was workable and good.

      • Gary

        Gilly-I just spent the last six years in AK in a fisheries management position. Alaska does and better job of managing their fisheries than anywhere in the U.S. As for the petrol, you can’t sell it if it never comes out of the ground. The Alaska pipeline was very well thought out and took the climate, environment and wildlife into consideration when built.

    • Maddie

      ANWAR is a tiny area in a vast expanse, we need to stop buying oil from countries who hate the US and those who use the money we pay for oil to fund their murderous terrorist activities.

      • Yes

        We need to cut our use of gas down too. We’ve known for decades what was going on in the middle east and did nothing to change our habits. We need to tighten our collective belts when it comes to using gas and oil instead of just finding new places to drill.

  • tad

    LOVE SARAH!

    • Maddie

      She never stops continuing to impress me with her facebook notes and public appearances. She has a way of connecting with the average American and stands up boldly against her adversaries.

      • Pandora

        Maddie, et. al., Palin seems to appeal to the “base” that are as dumb as she is. I’m not afraid of Sarah Palin, are you kidding.

    • Fd

      wrong again

  • Danielle

    She OWNS you all and I LOVE it!

    • Dora

      No she actually doesn’t. Most of us sane people think people like her and you are crazy

    • Maddie

      She’s having fun striking the nerves of the haters

      • Fd

        You are wrong again

  • Kelsey

    I wish she would just go away. I don’t wish her ill, I just want to never have to see or hear about her ever again.

    • Maddie

      No one is forcing you to read about her on the internet. o one shoved this article down your throat, you sought it out by clicking on the link.

      • joseph

        Great post!

      • my dog is smarter than Sarah

        someone has to counteract you Fox News brain-washed folks.
