GO COAST: LOUISIANA TRAVELS TO TERREBONNE PARISH
NEW EPISODE PREMIERES FRIDAY DECEMBER 20 & SUNDAY DECEMBER 22
New Orleans (December 16, 2013) WLAE-TV New Orleans will premiere the Terrebonne episode of the Emmy Award winning program Go Coast: Louisiana, Friday, December 20th at 9:30PM and then again on Sunday December 22nd at 8:30PM.
Exploring Terrebonne Parish, Go Coast’s host Tom Gregory discovers it’s easy to pass a good time with the good people of this area named “the good earth”.
During his journey through Louisiana’s Bayou Country, Tom calls alligators with Captain Ron “Black” Guidry of A Cajun Man’s Swamp Tour. At the Jolly Inn in Houma, he ventures onto the dance floor and experiences some true Cajun hospitality. There is also a stop at one Houma’s newest hot spots, Vino!
On his visit to the Regional Military Museum in Houma for a history lesson on World War II, the host grabs the wheel of both a M-113 Armored Personnel Carrier and a LCVP Boat.
At Southdown Plantation, Tom takes the seat of power—if only for a minute—at the desk of Senator Allen J. Ellender. His tour also includes the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum and the Chauvin Sculpture Garden, that is the home of hauntingly emotive art of Kenny Hill, who disappeared in 2000.
Also in this episode, the host goes 30 miles off shore to do some deepwater fishing with Captain Lee Schouest of CoCo Marina. The results may change fishing forever.
The episode is a perfect travel guide for your own adventures through Louisiana’s Bayou Country.
Houma’s own Tab Benoit and the Voice of the Wetlands Festival will be featured in January on the next installment of Go Coast: Louisiana.
In the show’s first season, GO Coast: Louisiana, produced by WLAE-TV/LAE Productions, has won two Emmy Awards (Tom Gregory has won the award in the On-Camera Talent category for two years in a row!) and has been honored with two Excellence In Journalism Awards from the Press Club of New Orleans, the most of any non-news series in Louisiana.
