The Governor’s Wife on A&E follows 86-year-old former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards and his new bride, 35-year-old Trina Grimes Scott. The “King of Louisiana” shocked the state and his family when he married his former prison pen pal after serving 8 ½ years for bribery and extortion stemming from his tenure as governor. Their newly combined family includes Edwin’s two daughters, who are nearly twice Trina’s age, and Trina’s two teenage sons from a previous marriage. Follow Trina as she discovers Edwin’s reserve of frozen sperm to try to grow the family, and her attempts to fit into Edwin’s Southern high society and get along with her older stepdaughters and corral her teenage sons and fend off skeptics who think she’s a gold digger. Together, the Edwards redefine the modern family.
