Two of America’s most polarizing moms are teaming up on television.

Reality star Kate Gosselin will appear on TLC’s new series “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” starring the former GOP vice presidential candidate, the network has confirmed.

"The Palins graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family and that camping trip will be part of an upcoming episode," said TLC president and general manager Eileen O'Neill, ETOnline reported.

The network was mum on details of how much time the “Kate Plus 8” star spent in the woods with Mama Grizzly, as Palin has taken to calling herself on on the stump for other conservative candidates.

The ex-Alaska gov’s new show is "about Alaska seen through Palin's eyes and shot in the style of Discovery's Planet Earth," TLC execs announced last week.

The eight-episode program by Emmy-winning “Survivor” and “Apprentice” producer Mark Burnett will reportedly feature Palin leading guided tours of her home state, visiting a gold mine and fishing boats. It is set to premiere Nov. 14 at 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, Gosselin, who shot to fame on “Jon and Kate Plus 8” and went on to compete on “Dancing with the Stars” after splitting from hubby Jon, has been busy filming her own new show on TLC.

“Twist of Kate” will feature Gosselin traveling the country to see how other families respond to “their own extraordinary challenges,” according to TLC’s website.

The show was slated to premiere this summer, though no date has been announced.
