Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg is developing a reality show based on her family. The Ghost star is developing a documentary series, which will centre upon her actress/producer daughter Alex Martin's family and her longtime friendship with actor Lee Weaver's daughter Leisa. Goldberg says, "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." The series will also follow Goldberg's granddaughter, Amara, as she moves back to the family home after becoming a mother. Whoopi adds, "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." 44 Blue Productions, the company behind Mark and Donnie Wahlberg's hit reality show Wahlburgers, will produce the new series along with Goldberg.
