TLC, which televised “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” during the 2010-2011 season, may go back into business with the former governaor, the New York Post reports.

The cable net is in discussions with producer Mark Burnett about a second season of the show, according to the report.

“The plan would be to shoot this in the summer of 2012,” Burnett said, according to the story. The show would debut in the fall, but not until after the November presidential election, the piece adds.

Burnett said the election would be mentioned in the show, but "it would be again Sarah in Alaska, living with Todd and the family and having adventures juxtaposed with doing her Fox News bits and discussing whatever is going on," he said, according to the piece.

Burnett said reports that TLC and other networks passed on a $1 million-per-episode spinoff featuring Palin’s husband and snowmobiling are inaccurate.

Said Burnett, according to the story: “In fact, the idea around snowmobiling was to be part of an episode in ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’ — not a series.”
