"Sarah Palin's Alaska" Trailer Released

TLC has released a trailer for "Sarah Palin's Alaska," the former governor and vice presidential candidate's reality-style television show. In it,  Palin and her family are shown spending time together in their home state.

The trailer shows Palin cross-country skiing, kayaking, mushing behind sled dogs and driving an off-road vehicle, among other activities. (There are also bears.) It includes a number of scenes of the family together, and at one point showing Palin saying to one of her daughters, "no boys, go upstairs!"

Says Palin in the trailer, of spending time outdoors: "This is flippin' fun...How come we can't ever just be satisfied with tranquility?"

Later, she adds: "I'd rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office. I'd rather be out here being free."

The show seems to focus to a significant degree on Palin's relationship with her family, and the trailer includes Palin saying, "family comes first, it's just gotta be that way."

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" debuts on November 14th.
