Mark Wahlberg docuseries ordered at HBO Max

WarnerMedia’s HBO Max has ordered a new eight-part documentary series fronted by US movie star Mark Wahlberg.

Wahl Street is being produced by Unrealistic Ideas, which was co-founded by Wahlberg (Wahlburgers), who will also take on an EP role. The series began production in December.

No release date has yet been named, but HBO Max will launch in May.

The programme will follow the actor, producer and musician about his daily life as he juggles the demands of a rigorous film schedule and his growing network of business ventures.

“We’re documenting the ups, the downs, the hits and the misses. It’s all the real stuff that’s happening while I’m growing my businesses,” said Wahlberg, “We’re pulling back the curtain and hopefully it’s an opportunity to inspire other entrepreneurs.”

“This series will be an intimate exploration behind the drive that makes Mark Wahlberg one of the most unique stars in entertainment,” said Jennifer O’Connell, EVP of original non-fiction and kids programming at HBO Max. “Mark’s entrepreneurial spirit is fun to watch and we hope to show both the struggle and triumphs of what it takes to succeed.”

Wahl Street joins the already announced The Event among upcoming documentaries commissioned for the soon-to-be-launched streamer.

The Event will offer “an unprecedented look” behind the scenes at Wolfgang Puck Catering, a company known for taking on exclusive functions, such as the Academy Awards Oscars Party.
