Palin goes outdoors with new show on Sportsman Channel

By CNN Political Unit

Mama Grizzly is returning to reality TV.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will host a new show that features her widely-known passion for the outdoors. The weekly series, "Amazing America with Sarah Palin," debuts on the Sportsman Channel in April, the network announced Monday.

A news release about the show said the series will showcase an "anthology of stories that explore some of the most original, interesting -- and sometimes inspiring -- people, places and pastimes connected to America's outdoors lifestyle" from coast-to-coast.

"I'm excited to help shine a light on all the great American sportsmen and women in the country who live the outdoors lifestyle," Palin said in the release.

It's not her first foray into cable television. She was the executive producer of "Sarah Palin's Alaska," a short series that ran on TLC in late 2010 to early 2011.

She also appeared in several episodes of "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," a series that followed the life of her eldest daughter when she moved away from home.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee has also been a Fox News contributor for years, though she briefly departed the network in the last year.

The Sportsman Channel, which launched in 2003, focuses on hunting, fishing and shooting lifestyle.
