The show will not only highlight Wahlberg and his successes but will also showcase “life lessons” learned through the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur.
“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,” Wahlberg said in a statement. “We’re pulling back the curtain, and hopefully, it’s an opportunity to inspire other entrepreneurs.”
Production on ‘Wahl Street’ began in December, and there is no current word on a release date for the series.
However, according to Entertainment Weekly, HBO Max guarantees that the series will introduce viewers to “the cast of colorful characters that make up Wahlberg’s real-life entourage.”
Wahlberg is set to executive produce the project along with Stephen Levinson, Archie Gips, and Liz Bronstein.
