Count of this show to be a lot more steamy than Palin's previous single season bomb, "Sarah Palin's Alaska. After only the first episode, audiences were unexpectedly bored with gawking at the woman.
"With there being nudity in our show," promises one unnamed staffer on the production team, "she'll no doubt make a point of showing her ass sometime during the season. It's not nice and it's not pretty but it'll get her a lot of attention. And she likes that. A lot."Others on the set agree. "Oh this'll be groundbreaking TV, that's for sure. It's a whole new genre. We are just calling it 'fictional reality TV' and it fits Sarah Palin like a glove."
Producers of the show, however, were adamant about one provision in Sarah's contract. Lynn Gwenny, the show's executive producer stated, "We stipulated that Palin had to complete all 23 episodes of the first season. We didn't want her to quit half-way through the season."
