edwardsThe production company behind the forthcoming reality television show featuring former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards and his wife, Trina, has applied for tax credits with the state’s motion picture incentive program, according to IND contributing writer Jeremy Alford via HoumaToday.com.

Alford writes that Leftfield Pictures has only applied at this point and it’s unclear according to an official with Louisiana Economic Development what types of credit “The Governor’s Wife” might be eligible to receive. According to the program, “projects that spend at least $300,000 in the state may be eligible for one tax credit equivalent to 30 percent of their total eligible in-state costs that are directly related to the production and an additional credit on their Louisiana resident payroll worth 5 percent.”

The Edwardses announced recently that Trina Scott Edwards, 34, is pregnant through artificial insemination with the 85-year-old pol’s offspring.
