Clint Eastwood’s Family to Star in Reality TV Series

If you’re not already completely jacked up just reading the title, I’m not so sure we can still be friends.

Now I’m not a fan of reality television in the slightest.

I actually kind of abhor the entire idea of it in most circumstances (see: Kardashians, Hogans, Osbournes, etc.) as it tends to glamorize some of the worst people and perpetuate their largely unearned celebrity status.

Yet, for some reason, I cannot quit thinking that a reality show that involves Dirty freakin’ Harry—even in a small role—is going to make for some incredible television.

Here’s the quick rundown about the forthcoming series from the Associated Press:

The E! network said Tuesday that “Mrs. Eastwood & Company” will premiere May 20 as a 10-episode series.

The show spotlights Dina Eastwood, who has been married to the Oscar-winning actor-director since 1996. Also on hand are the Eastwoods’ 15-year-old daughter, Morgan, as well as 18-year-old Francesca, Clint Eastwood’s daughter with actress Frances Fisher.

Rounding out the cast is the all-male, six-member vocal group Overtone, managed by Dina Eastwood.

“Mrs. Eastwood & Company” is being filmed in the family’s hometown of Carmel, Calif., as well as in Los Angeles.

Clint Eastwood is expected to make guest appearances.

I grew up watching tons of Clint Eastwood movies and he is—despite being 162-years-old—still one of the most bad-ass dudes on the planet.

That having been said, I have no doubt that he’s going to make the most of each and every “guest appearance” on the show.

I’m already picturing him screaming at the a cappella group to get off his lawn before he dramatically chases them down, pulverizes their faces with his leathered hands and then starts shooting people with a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world.

It should be noted that in my head, Clint Eastwood really is every character he’s ever played.

If that’s not the case, this show could be dramatically less exciting than I’m anticipating.

  1. I might give that one a go. If Eastwood is involved that’s enough to hook me, unfortunately.

    • Maybe let ‘em run out a few episodes first and then just YouTube the clips when he shows up.
