The ReelzChannel television network says it is airing a pro-Sarah Palin documentary this weekend for business reasons, not political ones.
ReelzChannel picked up the rights to "The Undefeated," a theatrical release on Palin's life that was out last summer. It will air on TV less than 24 hours after the debut of HBO's "Game Change," an account of Palin's 2008 campaign for vice president.
ReelzChannel CEO Stan Hubbard says he's looking to attract attention — much like the network did last spring by airing the miniseries "The Kennedys" after the History Channel made it and then shelved it.
Unlike Palin's fans, Hubbard says he has no problem with "Game Change," and would be happy to trade films with HBO.
