From pop icons to burger boys and now reality TV stars, Donnie and Mark Wahlberg are about to enter the public eye in a new way.
A&E announced it will take viewers inside the lives of the Wahlberg family with a reality TV series that offers behind-the-scenes footage of the singers/actors running the family burger restaurant Walhburgers.
"Walhburgers" will premiere Jan. 22. The latest food-based reality show is an inside look at Donnie, Mark and their brother Paul as they run the family restaurant in Hingham, Mass., as a hangout spot for the old gang, including cousin Johnny Alves, a.k.a. Johnny "Drama," who supposedly inspired Mark Wahlberg's character on HBO's "Entourage."
"We're thrilled to partner with the entire Wahlberg family as they graciously lift the curtain to share this new side of their story," said David McKillop, Executive Vice President and General Manager of A&E Network, in a statement. "This series offers viewers a new take on the celebrity reality series showcasing one of America's favorite families."
But before ancient music fans of New Kids on the Block and Marky Mark get too excited, both Donnie and Mark Wahlberg still have active acting careers so it's unclear how much they will appear in the series. Instead, media reports speculate that the show will focus largely on brother Paul and mother Alma.
