Whoopi: "I wanted to tell the story of two best friends"

Sister Act star Whoopi Goldberg is to produce a yet-to-be-named reality TV show about her daughter Alex Martin and her family.

The 58-year-old star will base the show on her daughter Alex Martin, 40, who has three children in their teens and 20s, and her best friend Leisa, according to Deadline.

Speaking about her new project, 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.''
