Clint Eastwood's family to star in 'Mrs. Eastwood & Co.' reality show
UPI News Service, 03/13/2012
Clint Eastwood's wife and daughters are to star in a reality TV show, E! announced Tuesday.
Set in the famous family's home in Carmel, Calif., "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" is a 10-part series centering on the Hollywood actor and filmmaker's wife, Dina, their daughter Morgan and his daughter Francesca, whose mother is actress Frances Fisher.
"I know my limitations with Clint, so I don't push him too hard," Dina told E! in an exclusive interview Tuesday about how much her Oscar-winning husband will be seen on the show.
Dina said she hopes the series will help her promote Overtone, an a cappella group of six young men she manages after having them move into the Eastwood home from their native South Africa.
"I found them when Clint was filming 'Invictus,'" Dina said, referring to her husband's Nelson Mandela bio-picture. "I flipped out for them. I said, 'I'm moving them over here.' From the day they got off the plane, everyone said, 'This has to be a show.'"
She promised viewers won't see any aggressive behavior from her family members on the series, as has been on display in reality shows featuring other famous families.
"There isn't going to be slapping or fighting," Dina said.
The series is to premiere May 20 on E!.
Dina, 46, and Clint Eastwood, 81, married in 1986.
