A&E Network says Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will appear on the Season 6 premiere of "Duck Dynasty."

The News-Star reports that Jindal will be featured with the West Monroe Robertsons on the June 11 premiere.

Jindal traveled to the Duck Commander headquarters in February, where he presented the Robertson family with the inaugural Governor's Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.

While there, the governor, who was accompanied by First Lady Supriya Jindal and their children, was apparently woven into the story line.

"It was really neat to have the governor on our show," Willie Robertson told The News-Star. "His family loves watching the show, and they all came up to West Monroe to participate.

"He did a great job and is used to cameras being around, so he was natural. And playing yourself always helps."

Jindal said he couldn't reveal his plot line because of a confidentiality agreement.

"My family and I had so much fun hanging out with the Robertsons and participating in the filming of Duck Dynasty was a highlight," Jindal said.

Louisiana's First Lady, Supriya Jindal, and Korie Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" recently took part in a celebration of giving new lives to adopted children, rappelling down a 24-story Baton Rouge building.

Friday's event was aimed at bringing awareness to the more than 300 foster care children who are available for adoption in Louisiana. Louisiana Family Forum organized the event, which is in its second year.

The Times-Picayune reports the women dropped more than 300 feet off One American Place. LSU Coach Les Miles took the plunge last year.

Robertson and her husband, Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson, have two adopted children. She brought two of their five children, Sadie and John Luke, to participate.

Willie and Korie Robertson star on "Dynasty" with Willie’s father, Phil, and mother, Kay; his uncle, Si; and Willie’s siblings Jase and Jep.
