Last month I had the opportunity to attend a BlogWorld Expo keynote by Brian Solis with Mark Burnett, legendary reality show producer. The room as full of bloggers wanting to hear words of wisdom from Mark Burnett as he told stories of Survivor and the challenges of his latest production, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, set to air on TLC November 14.
If one takes away the political background of Sarah Palin and looks at this show objectively, it’s a very good travel show offering beautiful landscape views and an inside look of family adventure activities in Alaska. The show has been ridiculed on various talk shows, but it makes me wonder if any of those hosts commenting on the show even watched the previews.
We don’t talk politics on TravelingMamas.com because we’re not a political blog. We like to promote travel and experiences for readers to make lasting memories. Alaska has always been a destination I’ve dreamed of visiting and after watching these clips, it makes me yearn for a visit even more. The eight week mini-series of Sarah Palin’s Alaska showcases one of the most beautiful states in the US.
Below is a clip of a close-encounter the Palin family has with a mama bear. I don’t know if I’d get that close to a bear, but it does make for exciting reality television. If you’re interested, watch Sarah Palin’s Alaska on TLC beginning November 14. For background on the series, check out SPAlaska.com. I’m looking forward to seeing a glimpse of Alaska through one family’s adventures.
SARAH PALIN’S ALASKA is a new documentary series that takes viewers into the country’s ‘final frontier’ through the eyes of one of its most famous citizens – Sarah Palin. In each episode, various family members join Sarah as she shares the state she knows and loves – from salmon fishing in Bristol Bay to hiking along one of our country’s most breathtaking glaciers. Along with Alaska’s great wilderness, the Palins encounter Alaska’s fascinating residents and share what it takes to thrive in the country’s largest state.
