A&E apparently liked the look of the Mark Wahlberg’s TV pilot about a group of young, working-class women from Boston. We’re told the network has ordered six episodes of the docu-series -- still untitled -- making it the first unscripted series for Wahlberg. (As we’ve reported, he’s got a few others in the works.) Wahlberg is executive producing the show along with Stephen Levinson of Leverage, Bill Thompson of Bill Thompson Productions, reality TV producer Stephanie Drachkovitch of 44 Blue Productions, and showrunner Jennifer Colbert. Unlike the jokey “Southie Rules” or the crass “Wicked Single,” Wahlberg is aiming to inspire with this show, telling the stories of young women who, with the help of family and friends, try to overcome obstacles and improve themselves. Success, they discover, is not easy.
