A&E to Debut Boston Working Class Docudrama From Mark Wahlberg

A&E’s relationship with Mark Wahlberg is growing stronger, as the cabler announces a premiere date for another reality show from the multihyphenate star titled “Breaking Boston.”

Docudrama follows a group of four blue-collar women in their twenties trying to break the cycle of their peers in a town where education, employment and opportunities are hard to come by. Each one of the working class women has already hit their personal rock bottom with destructive relationships or bad choices, but are leaning on one another and looking for a way out.

A&E will debut the unscripted program on March 13.

Wahlberg is exec producing “Breaking Boston,” and has mirrored the series on his own life and experiences in Boston, his hometown.

“These are real women telling their original stories of trying to break out of what’s expected of them,” said Wahlberg. “The odds are difficult, but I believe they can make it.”

44 Blue Prods. produces “Breaking Boston,” and is the shingle behind Wahlberg’s other A&E reality series, “Wahlburgers.” Closest to the Hole Prods., Leverage Entertainment and Bill Thompson Prods. are also producing “Breaking Boston.” Exec producers include Wahlberg, Stephen Levison, Bill Thompson, Stephanie Drachkovich, Jennifer Colbert, Lily Neumeyer and Devon Graham.
