Bristol Palin TV Show Received State Subsidy

The California company that made Bristol Palin's TV show about raising her child has collected a $354,348 subsidy from the state.

Unlike nearly all of the other shows and films subsidized so far under the movie incentive program, the salaries paid to Alaska residents on the Palin show account for a majority of the total  "Alaska expenses" for the TV show.

Palin and the five other Alaska residents who participated as "talent" on the show collected close to a half-million in wages.
