Levi Johnston arrives at the 2010 Teen Choice AwardsSo, he may not be headed down the aisle with Bristol Palin any time soon, but Levi Johnston just can't let go of the reality TV show dream. Having shopped around various ideas to television networks, he's now reported to be working on another new show: 'Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office.'

Yes, you read it right: The 20-year-old Johnston wants to follow in Sarah Palin's footsteps and run for the office of Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. And have it chronicled as part of a "no-holds barred" reality show that will follow the erstwhile 'Playgirl' model as he goes about his campaign and his daily life co-raising son Tripp.

Johnston told 'Variety' that although he initially wasn't that into the whole idea, "the more I think about it and look into it, I think there's a possibility we can make it happen."

He also said that he hopes the show will clear up any misconceptions the public may have about him: "It's hard to figure me out. ... You've got to follow me around. I'm very different. I lead a crazy life. But it will basically be both worlds, my life in Hollywood and back home, the real country boy that I am."

If elected in 2012 Johnston will reportedly take his political responsibilities seriously and serve out his full term in office. There's been no word yet on what his former mother-in-law-to-be makes of his new political ambitions.
