Palins, Discovery Channel descend on Talkeetna

July 15, 2010 

Nothing was official Wednesday, but the Palin family and Sarah's parents were indisputably in Talkeetna with a Discovery Channel crew in tow, filming scenes for the upcoming series "Sarah Palin's Alaska." KTNA reports weather probably kept Palins and crew from being flown to a glacier on the flanks of Mount McKinley. Palin on Tuesday tweeted she was going to climb a "sliver" of Denali called "Sweettooth." "Sarah Palin's Alaska" is scheduled to air on Discovery's TLC channel in the fall.

Meanwhile, Talking Points Memo reports that the publisher of a Sarah Palin biography aimed at Christian kids has delayed its release.
