Clint Eastwood's family is ready for its close-up—in reality television!

Yup, cameras have been rolling at the legendary filmmaker's home in Carmel, Calif....

Mrs. Eastwood & Company, a 10-part series that centers on Eastwood's wife, Dina, and daughters Morgan and Francesca (her mom is Frances Fisher, but she also calls Dina "Mom"), premieres on E! on May 20.

"I know my limitations with Clint so I don't push him too hard," Dina told me in an exclusive interview.

Dina has no plans to become a Real Housewife of Carmel. Instead she's hoping the show will help launch Overtone, an a cappella group of six young men that she now manages after moving them into the Eastwoods' home from their native—ready for this?—South Africa.

"I found them when Clint was filming Invictus," Dina explained. "I flipped out for them. I said, 'I'm moving them over here.' From the day they got off the plane, everyone said, 'This has to be a show.' "

Don't expect to see any table flipping. "There isn't going to be slapping or fighting," Dina said.

Maybe so, but what about car crashes?

Overtone had only been in the states for three days when one of the guys accidently crashed Clint's brand new Mercedes into the front of a grocery store.

We imagine Clint wasn't too thrilled, but it certainly makes for good reality television.
