The Eastwoods want to be the new Kardashians
Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood is heading to the world of reality TV. The Dirty Harry star, his wife and two of his daughters are set to star in a new docu-series about their lives.
Ah -- just what the world needs: A new First Family of reality TV.
Clint Eastwood's wife and two of his daughters are angling to become the small screen's next big thing. The ladies are currently shooting a show in the sam vein as family-centered docu-soaps like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, The Osbournes and Hogan Knows Best.
Ok, maybe that last one was a bad example.
According to TMZ, the still-untitled series will explore what it's like to be "Hollywood royalty" and revolve around the acclaimed actor/director's wife Dina, their daughter Morgan and Clint's other daughter Francesca.
Francesa, 18, was born during Eastwood's union with his Unforgiven co-star Frances Fisher. The leggy teen is also an aspiring actress (which probably means she'll mug at the camera a lot).
And get this: Mr. Eastwood, a multiple Oscar winner, is also expected to appear on the show. The 81-year-old Dirty Harry star has agreed to make a few cameo appearances on camera, insiders say.
But if the legendary tough guy ever has a plotline about getting a bikini wax, the entire Earth will burst into flames.
The project is being produced by top reality television producers Bunim/Murray -- the same company behind the Kardashian franchise.
Bunim/Murray also produces MTV's Jersey Shore and The Real World, plus The Bad Girls Club on Oxygen.
The program is being shopped to networks, but E! is the most likely home, says those in-the-know.
If it scores a buyer, the show could premiere in early 2012.
Keeping Up with the Clint has a nice ring to it.
Would you tune in for an inside look at life with the Eastwoods?
