Sadly, Dirty Harry himself has sucked into the reality television vortex. That’s right: Clint Eastwood will soon be coming to the small screen near you, wedged somewhere between “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Ice Loves Coco” on the E! network.

“Mrs. Eastwood and Company” will focus on the lives of Dina Ruiz, Clint’s wife, and their two daughters, Francesca, 18, and Morgan, whose mother is actress Frances Fisher, USA Today reported.

The 81-year-old movie stair is expected to make guest appearances in a few episodes, which is filmed in his sprawling Carmel, Calif., home.

“Nothing is more important to me than family — no matter how you define that,” Dina said in a news release. Ruiz and Eastwood have been married for 15 years.

Ruiz says she hopes the show will help launch Overtone, an a cappella group made up of six South African men that she manages after moving them into the Eastwood’s home.

“I found them when Clint was filming ‘Invictus’,” Ruiz said. “I flipped out for them…From the day they got off the plane, everyone said, ‘This has to be a show.'”

The singers had been in the states for only three days when one of the boys accidentally crashed Clint’s brand-new Mercedes into the front of a grocery store. Makes for perfect for reality TV, don’t you think?
