Who knew that Clint Eastwood‘s family had Kardashian-like ambitions? E! announced today that they’ve ordered ten episodes of a new series “Mrs. Eastwood & Company,” which will debut on May 20.
The series revolves around Clint’s wife Dina Eastwood and their daughters Francesca and Morgan. Francesca is Dina’s stepdaughter — she’s the daughter of Clint and Frances Fisher — but they apparently have a mother-daughter relationship. Morgan is still attending high school. In each half-hour episode, the Eastwood women will be shown operating from their Carmel, CA base and travel to Los Angeles and other locales. Also featured in the series will be the South African singing group Overtone, which Dina manages.
“Nothing is more important to me than family – no matter how you define that,” Dina Eastwood said in the release. “People might be surprised by how we live our lives and our unconventional approach, and I also believe that it’s hard not to fall in love with my band, ‘Overtone.'”
Clint Eastwood will appear occasionally on the show, and he seems to be on board, saying in the press release that “I’m really proud of my family. They are a constant source of inspiration and entertainment.”
Let’s hope that Clint doesn’t become the butt of jokes like one time American hero Bruce Jenner has become on the various Kardashian shows. Then again, all Clint needs to do is sneer and tell the cameras to “Get off my lawn!” and all will be right in the world.
