Whoopi Goldberg is to make a reality show about her family.

Whoopi Goldberg is to produce a reality TV show about her daughter Alex Martin and her family.

The 58-year-old actress will produce the series through her One Ho Productions along with 44 Blue Productions, and will focus the programme on her daughter Alex Martin, 40, who has three children in their teens and 20s, and her best friend Leisa.

According to Deadline, the show will follow Alex as she tries to reinvent herself both personally and professionally with the help of her husband Bernard and Leisa, whose father is actor Lee Weaver. Whoopi said: "I wanted to tell the story of two best friends who experience all of the major phases of a woman's life together. "Alex and Leisa have been friends since they were 17 and are both children of famous people, and are now approaching 40.

"My daughter just became a grandmother and her daughter just turned 24 and they are just trying to figure their lives out.

"This is really the story of an all-American family for a new generation; it looks a little different than the storybooks, but it's filled with love and laughter."

The show will begin when Alex's 24-year-old daughter moves back in with her parents, along with her fiance and their baby daughter Charli Rose.

A network is not yet attached to the currently untitled series.
