New A&E reality program focuses on former Louisiana governor


It is good to be the king. Just ask Edwin Edwards.

Edwards, an 85-year-old former governor of Louisiana, is known as the "King of Louisiana." Edwards, his 34-year-old wife and their family are going to be the subject matter of a new A&E reality program, called 'The Governor's Wife.' 

The 12-episode series, which launches on Wednesday, February 27 at 10 p.m., will show what Edwards and wife Trina Grimes Scott go through. The couple had a storybook romance - pen pals while he was imprisoned for eight-and-a-half years for extortion and bribery during his time as governor, leading to marriage as soon as he was released.

Edwards has four children from previous marriages, from 62 years of age down to 13. So the oldest is almost twice the age of her stepmother. 

The show will show Trina trying to adjust to life with her senior citizen husband, his family and social circle. 

SSS Entertainment and Leftfield Pictures, who previously worked with such highbrow entertainment as ‘Pawn Stars,' are producing the series together for A&E. 

'The Governor's Wife' joins A&E's unscripted lineup, which is led by 'Duck Dynasty,' 'Hoarders,' Intervention,' and the forthcoming 'Be the Boss.' Will you check out the Edwards family?
