T&T Carnival to feature in “WAGS” episode on E! Network
Trinidad Carnival will be featured in an upcoming episode of the E! Network reality series WAGS LA.
WAGS stands for Wives and Girlfriends, and follows the lives of several sporting WAGS.
One of the stars Sasha Gates, wife of NFL star Antonio Gates, was born in T&T, and has wanted to showcase the signature event for a while now.
She brought with her, three cast-mates, as well as 14 other crew members.
While in T&T, they were treated to transport, security, discounted room rates, carnival costumes and accreditation passes by the TDC, in collaboration with the Tourism Ministry, Film TT, Fantasy Carnival, Chaconia Hotel, Richard Anthony Productions and National Carnival Commission.
Seven local film professionals assisted the filming effort, led by Ian Royer of Anansi Tales Marketing.
The WAGS were able to not only participate in the Parade of the Bands with Fantasy Carnival, but also view traditional Carnival and a number of tourist hot spots.
The Carnival WAGS episode (as it has been dubbed) will air in the upcoming summer run of the series on the E! Network.
The show is viewed by some 31 million people online and 15 million people on the network in North America alone.
