'Big Texas Heat' premier party draws big crowd & lots of laughs

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The Trinity Police Department was the talk of the town this weekend making their television debut on the new CMT reality series, Big Texas Heat.

It was a packed house at the Trinity Fire Hall Saturday evening as friends and family of the stars of Big Texas Heat anxiously awaited the series premier.

"The Boss", "Big Sexy", "The Rookie", "Little Man" and "The Sergeant" were all there and couldn't wait to see the first episode.

Contrary to popular belief, the characters were watching the premier episode for the first time along with everyone else in the viewing audience.

When Big Texas Heat finally came on, it was far from quiet, everyone was doubled over in laughter.

"The Rookie's" friend, Rachel Saunders said, "It made me laugh. I was laughing the whole time. I mean my cheeks hurt because it was just so very funny."

Chief Steven Jones brother, Mark Jones had this to say: "I think it's pretty good. Pretty entertaining."

"Big Sexy's" Sister-in-law, Christine Jackson said that "Big Sexy" got a little bit of his sexiness from her,  "I think it's great. I'm going to watch it again. It was better than I thought it was going to be. It was actually really funny."

The Chief's nephew, Trent Jones says there aren't really any words to describe what kind of show it is, "I think it's a good mixture of funny, hilarious and basically just a whole of things."

Overall it seems like everyone thought it was funny but was it an accurate portrayal of the trinity police officers, most say yes.

Felix Morales aka "The Rookie's" wife, Leslie Morales said, "It's an accurate portrayal. You know they're out there arresting people but they're out there having fun too. It really shows that they're human too."

"The Rookie's" father, Felix Morales Sr. drove all the way from Galveston, TX to see his son's TV debut, "I loved it. It shows they got a sense of humor and when they're on the job they do their job right."

A fan of "The Rookie's", Ruby Saunders said, "They have a nice balance of what they do for a living and doing their job and along with some fun times and I think that balance is going to work out really well."


It's clear the City of Trinity supports their officers and Big Texas Heat now only time will tell if the rest of the nation joins in.

Check out Big Texas Heat CMT Saturday's at 9:30 p.m. and if you'd like to learn more about the characters go to http://www.cmt.com/show/big_texas_heat/series.jhtml or www.trinitypolice.com
