The reality show being pitched by former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin with reality producer Mark Burnett has been passed on by all the major networks according to reports, but still has hope of finding a home on cable.

Variety’s Michael Schneider earlier in the day reported that both A&E Networks (which includes, A&E, History and Lifetime) and Discovery (which includes Animal Planet and TLC) were interested.  But James Hibberd reports that Discovery has passed.

Schneider  reported that Palin is seeking around $1 million per episode.  Hibberd’s report ups to between $1 million and $1.5 million and notes that’s a hefty amount for a first year series.
