Sarah Palin’s Daughter Lands US Reality Show

While her mother’s media career seems to be hitting the rocks, Bristol Palin’s is apparently going from strength to strength after she landed her own reality show in America.

Palin Junior became a household name after it was revealed that she had fallen pregnant during the election of 2008, in which her abstinence spouting mother was Presidential candidate John McCain’s running mate. She also made the finals of Dancing With The Stars despite being criticised for having ‘flat feet’ by a couple of judges.

BIO, a small US cable channel, said it had ordered 10 half-hour episodes of a documentary series that will follow Bristol Palin and her two-year-old son Tripp as they move to Los Angeles and work for a small charity there.

Producers say she will allow cameras “exclusive access” into her personal life for the first time. The move follows her mother’s own reality series last year, which was criticised for being nothing but an advert for the former Alaskan governor’s own future presidential ambitions.

“Bristol is the kind of personality BIO is drawn to,” said David McKillop, the channel’s executive vice president of programming.

“Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she’s opening up her real life, with her son and her friends the Massey brothers,” he added.
