REUTERS: The former Alaska governor is teaming with uber-producer Mark Burnett (“Survivor”) to shop a reality series about her home state, network sources confirm. Palin and Burnett made the rounds at least three of the major broadcasters (NBC, ABC and Fox) while in Los Angeles for her taping of “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” this week. Palin and her family would be on-camera in the show, which one executive described as “‘Planet Earth’ meets Alaska meets her family,” referring to Discovery’s high-definition nature hit. MORE

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: 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. MORE

LOS ANGELES TIMES: Fear not, it doesn’t appear that she’s pitching a show about herself or her family, but rather one about the state itself. That said, can’t imagine she won’t have some on-camera part or else what’s the appeal to a buyer? MORE
