Good news for Those Who Can’t Get Enough of Saran Palin: The former Alaska governor – who’s now a Fox News commentator, best-selling memoirist and Republican campaign machine – has a deal in the bag with the Discovery Channel, a source at the network confirms to PEOPLE.

According to everyone from Variety to The Washington Post, the series Sarah Palin’s Alaska has been picked up for a reported $1-million-plus per episode.

Variety says Palin’s project with reality-TV rainmaker Mark Burnett “will center on interesting characters, traditions and attractions in the 49th state – with the ex-VP candidate as a guide.”

A spokesman for Palin referred questions to Burnett’s office, which did not return requests for comment. Neither did a Discovery spokesperson.
