Just Trying to Help


Headbands off to uber-producer Mark Burnett for shopping two reality series featuring alpha females this week. In addition to the untitled Sarah Palin-Alaska project, Burnett has reunited with domestic goddess Martha Stewart to produce an eight-episode series, Help Me, Martha, in which strangers encountering last minute social event disasters find Stewart and a team of eight experts at their doorsteps. The hour-long show, which does not have a network yet, will find crisis-prone contestants via nominations by friends. [Variety]
