Sarah Palin lands new reality show on Sportsman Channel

Updated

Sarah Palin landed herself another reality TV show gig.

The Sportsman Channel announced Monday they hired the former Republican vice presidential candidate and self-proclaimed “Mama Grizzly” to host the new weekly outdoors show, Amazing America with Sarah Palin.

The show, which debuts in April, “explores and experiences the coolest and most original people, places, businesses, and gadgets that appeal to Red, Wild and Blue America,” said network. “Whether it is celebrities living the sportsman dream or equally enthusiastic everymen, Mrs. Palin will take us nationwide to find the people and places that share and reflect her passion for what makes our country amazing.”

“I’m excited to help shine a light on all the great American sportsmen and women in the country who live the outdoors lifestyle,” said Palin in a press release. “Sportsman Channel is the leader in their industry and I am thrilled to be partnering with them on this show.”

Viewers got their first look at Palin’s life in the great outdoors through the short-lived TLC reality series, Sarah Palin’s Alaska. After losing the 2008 ticket as Sen. John McCain’s running mate, Palin also became a frequent Fox News contributor.

Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel, doesn’t seem to be worried about the former Alaska governor’s outspoken political views. “It’s not our intention at Sportsman to take any political position,” he said, the AP reported. “This lifestyle, coast to coast, crosses every type of political spectrum.”

The network reportedly picked up 12 episodes to start.
