Donnie Wahlberg, Mark Wahlberg sign for reality TV show
Actors Mark and Donnie Wahlberg will head back to their home state of Massachusetts to join their chef brother Paul on "Wahlburgers," an A&E reality show about his two-year-old restaurant in Hingham, the cable channel announced Tuesday.
The show, scheduled to premiere Jan. 22, will include the siblings' mother, Alma, and friends Johnny "Drama" Alves (who was the model for the Kevin Dillon character on "Entourage," the HBO show executive produced by Mark Wahlberg), Henry "Nacho" Laun and Billy Leonard.
Paul, who was executive chef for nine years at Bridgeman's in Hull, Mass., is also the chef at his own Alma Nove, adjacent to Wahlburgers.
The three brothers announced in August they were opening a second Wahlburgers in Toronto.
Mark Wahlberg most recently co-starred with Denzel Washington in "2 Guns," while Donnie stars in the CBS cop drama "Blue Bloods."
