Former Republican Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska has reportedly signed a deal with a TV production company to host a reality TV show in which she would be a judge, similar to the hit show "Judge Judy."
Palin, who does not have a law degree, would preside over disputes if the proposed series gets picked up as a syndicated program by enough TV stations.
"It's a production deal," an unidentified source told People. "What happens next is she'll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it."
Palin reportedly inked the deal in February with Warm Springs, a production company based in Montana.
"Palin's telegenic personality, wide appeal and common-sense wisdom make her a natural for this kind of format, and she was Warm Springs' top pick for this project," the source added.
If the show gets picked up, it will premier in the fall of 2017.
"She's sold millions of books, one of which sold over 2 million copies, she's a proven ratings draw, she has close to 6 million followers on social media, she has a huge audience, and you can say that audience corresponds well with a daytime audience," Howard Bragman, a PR rep for Warm Springs, told USA Today.
Amanda Carpenter, of the Conservative Review, "blackballed" Palin and others who support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a March 18 column:
It's time to make a list.
A list of those so-called conservatives and Republicans endorsing Donald Trump, the megalomaniac who regularly threatens his opponents and the press, raves about making members of our military adopt ISIS-like tactics, has funded Obamacare and Gang of Eight Democrats, promises to forcibly relocate American companies to his liking, and has demonstrated again and again he intends to govern as a tyrannical King rather than a President.
Call it a boycott, call it a blackball, call it a blacklist, call it whatever you want. I’m done with these folks and other conservatives should be, too. Anyone who will defend a man condoning random acts of violence at his rallies has lost his morals; he will defend anything at all.
