A&E NETWORK PREMIERES "THE GOVERNOR'S WIFE" ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27 AT 10PM ET/PT

REALITY SERIES FOLLOWS LEGENDARY 86-YEAR-OLD FORMER LOUISIANA GOVERNOR EDWIN EDWARDS, HIS 35-YEAR-OLD WIFE & HER SEXAGENARIAN STEPDAUGHTERS

NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 26, 2013 - A&E Network premieres its new documentary series "The Governor's Wife," which follows former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards and his 35-year-old wife, Trina, as they attempt to bring a new addition to their unique family, on Sunday, October 27 at 10PM ET/PT.

Edwin Edwards, now 86 years old and still dubbed the "King of Louisiana," shocked the state (and his family) when he married Trina Grimes Scott, a woman 50 years his junior. They became pen pals while Edwin was serving an 8 1/2 year prison sentence for bribery and extortion - charges stemming from his tenure as Governor of Louisiana - and married when Edwin was released. This colorful couple heads a newly combined family comprised of Edwin's daughters: Anna, a 63-year-old, four-time divorcée and Victoria, a seen-it-all former performer who is never far from her electronic cigarette, as well as Trina's sons from a previous marriage, 16-year-old Logan and 14-year-old Trevor.

The series follows Trina as she discovers Edwin's reserve of frozen sperm and tries to grow the family, while also attempting to fit into the former governor's Southern high society, get along with stepdaughters twice her age, corral her teenage sons and fend off skeptics who think she's a gold digger. The Edwards' unexpected dynamic redefines what it means to be a modern family.

"The Governor's Wife" is produced for A&E Networks by Leftfield Pictures ("Pawn Stars") and SSS Entertainment. Executive producers for Leftfield Pictures are Brent Montgomery, David George, Will Nothacker and Dominick Pupa. Executive producer for SSS Entertainment is Shaun Sanghani. Executive producers for A&E are Drew Tappon and Devon Graham.
