Clint Eastwood family reality show to air on E!

The family behind one of Hollywood’s most respected actors and directors is jumping into the reality show business.

Set your DVR for “Mrs. Eastwood and Company,” which will follow the life and career of Clint Eastwood’s wife, Dina, as well as their teenage daughters, Francesca and Morgan.

The 10-part series will also shine a spotlight on Overtone, a six-member South African singing group that Dina manages. She reportedly found them while Clint was in the country filming the movie “Invictus” and moved them into the Eastwood home.

The show chronicles the family’s travels between their home in Carmel, California, and Los Angeles, giving fans some insight into the relationships between former television reporter Dina and her kids, as well as the romance between 18-year-old Francesca and her 29-year-old boyfriend.

Dina says she thinks people may be surprised to learn at how unconventional the Eastwood’s home life really is.

"Nothing is more important to me than my family, no matter how you define that," she said in a statement. "People might be surprised by how we live our lives and our unconventional approach."

Clint himself is expected to make guest appearances. The Hollywood legend had this to say about the upcoming show: "I'm really proud of my family. They are a constant source of inspiration and entertainment."

The show will debut on E! on Sunday, May 20.

    my disgust and disappointment is palpable. Never in a million years did I think Clint Eastwood would stoop so low as to joint the "reality tv" crap. I've just lost all respect for him.

    It's the first time I knew that Francesca was Dina's daughter. Frances Fisher is Francesca's daughter by Clint Eastwood. Morgan is Dina's and Clint's daughter. Frankly I could care less about watching it. Enough reality shows on now.

    Oh come on now! DO WE REALLY NEED ANOTHER REALITY SHOW? I DON'T THINK SO. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I REFUSE TO WATCH THIS. Is Clint really that down on his luck, or is his trophy wife that desparate?

  12. ..a laurel and hardy handshake.....

    Clint Eastwood, his family, his values, and his viewpoint (not necessarily his politics) are worth viewing.
    .
    Good luck Clint and Dina.

    So, there are degree of ridiculousness, apparently, when it comes to "reality TV"? I think not. It's All equally ridiculous and definitely not "real." Turn off TV, and all the other gizmos that supposedly improve and enhance "communication" and do something truly real - connect with your own family in real time, face-to-face. What a concept! And if you don't have a family? Then, "find your tribe", but not on TV, in the land of "sweeps," "season openers" and "finales." Connect with real people. They are all around you.

    Eastwood is expected to make "guest appearances". Eastwood will most likely be hiding in his room whenever the camera is around.
