E!, the same television network that brings us Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kendra, Ice Loves Coco, etc. is presenting Mrs. Eastwood and Company this May. The series follows Clint Eastwood’s wife and two teen daughters, and might show a few glimpses of Clint himself.
Clint’s wife Dina Ruiz manages a South African band called Overtone, and no doubt this show is a stab at getting them recognition in the U.S. The question is if the U.S. would really respond to the band. Although they received some acclaim when one of their songs appeared on the soundtrack of Eastwood directed Invictus, from their YouTube clips, it’s hard to think they’d have a wide appeal.
Here are few videos of Overtone performing:
The show also follows Clint’s 15-year-old daughter Morgan, and 19-year old Francesca, Clint’s child with ex Frances Fisher. The trailer voiceover points out all the ways The Eastwoods are different from every other Hollywood family with a reality show (Watch at EW.com here)
Some Hollywood families live for fame, this one lives to let live. Some adopt an attitude, this one adopted a band. Some live for the spotlight, this one lives a million miles away.
Doubt this show will have much drama on screen, but off screen Clint’s imbroiled in a little legal drama of his own. He’s currently suing furniture company Evofurniture for selling “Clint” entertainment centers and “The Eastwood” chairs and ottomans.
Mrs. Eastwood and Company debuts Sunday, May 20 @ 10 PM on E!
