Clint Eastwood Makes Our Day with New Reality Show TrailerHilary Rothing |
Sick of the Kardashians? Well, how's Clint Eastwood's family for a change of pace? E! Entertainment has released the first preview of the upcoming "Mrs. Eastwood & Company," which suggests the celeb family reality show will focus more on the "family" (and a random South African boyband) and less on the "celeb."
The ten episode half-hour series, which premieres on May 20th, follows Dina Eastwood, wife of the Academy Award winning Hollywood icon and their two teenage daughters, eighteen-year-old Francesca and fifteen-year-old Morgan. Though Clint Eastwood's role in the show is likely minimal, the South African vocal group known as "Overtone," who Dina manages, will be featured.
According to the official press release, fans of over-the-top celebrity reality shows might be a bit disappointed by Eastwood's "surprisingly normal blended and extended family." Dina Eastwood elaborated on her Hollywood family's down to earth lifestyle, which will soon be broadcast for all to see.
"Nothing is more important to me than family – no matter how you define that. 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.'"
Based on the last part of that statement, Dina Eastwood clearly sees this new reality show venture as a ripe opportunity to promote the musical act who also did the soundtrack for Eastwood's 'Invictus.' And everyone knows too much harmony isn't good for a reality show's ratings.
Still, this is E! and Clint Eastwood we're talking about here. I wouldn't expect an hour full of family picnics and kumbayas. Check out the first official preview below!
