BURBANK, Calif., May 14, 2018 – The Wahlberg family is back this summer on A&E Network with a brand new season of their hit reality series, produced by 44 Blue Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, starting Wednesday June 13 at 10pm ET/PT.
This season of “Wahlburgers” adapts a new hour-long format as the series takes an even deeper dive into the high stakes business world of Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg’s restaurant chain.
With plans to double in size in just one year, the brothers take on a huge risk by setting their sights on entering into an entirely new fast casual market by creating an “Express Model” version of Wahlburgers.
With heart, determination and some humor, this season follows the brothers as they work to partner with monster retail brands and propel themselves into hundreds of locations and untapped markets. Mark and Donnie’s dream of creating a legacy to outlive them is in their
reach, but Paul is resistant as he wants to make sure they maintain the quality and experience he’s always promised to deliver. With the help of Alma who always reminds the brothers to stay true to their humble beginnings, the brothers try to work it all out.
“Wahlburgers” is produced for A&E Network by 44 Blue Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, in association with Closest to the Hole Productions, Leverage Entertainment and Donnie D Productions. Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Donnie Wahlberg are executive producers. Executive producers for 44 Blue Productions are Rasha Drachkovitch, David Hale and Sara Quick. Executive producers for A&E are Devon Hammonds and Molly Ebinger.
