Take That, Sarah Palin: Levi Johnston Pitches a Reality Show About Alaska
Levi Johnston, Playgirl cover model and Sarah Palin's grandbaby daddy, is shopping a reality show about his life in Alaska.
Sound familiar? That's because Palin's show, titled Sarah Palin's Alaska, was picked up by the Discovery Channel last week.
The show, tentatively titled "Levi Johnston's Final Frontier," is "'Jersey Shore' on ice," Stuart Krasnow, the executive producer of Johnston's series, tells The Washington Post.
Krasnow insists that Johnston's show isn't a reaction to Palin's.
"When Sarah Palin made her announcement, we rushed and decided to go out quicker. In a competitive marketplace it made sense, if Sarah Palin is going to try to own Alaska," Krasnow says.
"Basically, the show is going to be about me and my closest guys, my son [Tripp], in Alaska, hunting, fishing, everything I like to do. Of course it's going to be about fatherhood ... me doing my thing," Johnston tells E! News.
The show, which also has been described as "sort of an Entourage on ice," might also have a hint of The Bachelor (on ice, of course).
"I haven't dated since [ex-fiancée] Bristol [Palin], so that is going to be in the show. It's going to be a part to fit -- me looking for women in California, across the world," Johsnton tells E! News. "I've got to find one, take her back to Alaska and see if she can hang."
No word yet on whether you'll be able to see Russia from either program.
