Reads the statement, "The docu-soap will follow the ever controversial, headline making, matinee idol, handsome father of one as he embarks on a run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska... [the] series will chronicle a 'no-holds-barred' period in Levi’s tumultuous life; co-raising his son Tripp, looking for love, and taking care of business for his fellow Wasillians. He will give us a real inside look into who he is as a father, a skilled hunter, an avid dirt biker, and of course his journey down the road of small town politics -- right after he gets his high school diploma."

"Levi thinks he can take the office by representing the real citizens of Wasilla," continues the statement. "If elected, Levi promises to serve his full term. Tank Jones will serve as Levi’s campaign manager."
