Governor Palin attended a press breakfast this morning for her upcoming show on the Sportsman Channel, Amazing America with Sarah Palin:
USA Today also has a nice piece on the upcoming program:
PASADENA, Calif. — Sarah Pain is known for her outdoorsy Alaskan lifestyle; she’s taking her show on the road in a new series, Amazing America with Sarah Palin, due in April on the small Sportsman Channel.
Her former TLC series, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, produced by Survivor‘s Mark Burnett, "was just kind of the tip of the iceberg, literally, about what we do up there in Alaska," she told TV critics Friday after inviting them up to her hometown to go ice fishing. "Sarah Palin’s Alaska obviously introduced a lot of people to that healthy Alaskan lifestyle, and we’re just going to expand that all across America." (The new show is produced by Craig Piligian, a former Burnett protege).
Palin, wearing black except for flag-patterned high-heeled shoes, says it’s "not going to be some kind of fake scripted reality show" but will "showcase people, places and things in order to restore, fundamentally, what makes America great," including her own family. Red-state Americans live an organic lifestyle that’s not limited to urban "granola" fans. "Their dinner just happens to be wrapped in fur rather than cellophane. So be it that we go out and shoot our dinner first."
Palin says the show won’t be political — she says she negotiated with Fox News Channel chief Roger Ailes to do it before returning there — except when it is. "Thank God this isn’t political … oh, except, in my DNA there’s a little bit of that. The political part of that is about protecting our freedoms. Second Amendment freedoms, of course."
