It will be produced by Mark Burnett of Survivor and Celebrity Apprentice fame.

Says Palin in a statement, "Our family enjoys Discovery's networks. I look forward to working with Mark to bring the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans."

TLC's parent company Discovery Communications won a bidding war against A&E, according to the Associated Press. Palin, 46, will make between $1 million and $1.5 million per episode, The Hollywood Reporter says.
