Most celebreality shows are tethered to some kind of product line. They are infomercials, in a way. And soon, Mark Wahlberg may be joining the club, as he and his brothers consider making a reality series built around the opening of their burger restaurant, Wahlburgers, located close to their restaurant Alma Nove in Hingham.
Talking to Mark Malkin of E!, Wahlberg -- whose TV production credits include "Entourage," "In Treatment," and "How to Make It in America" -- said he didn't plan to appear on the series. "Maybe I'll be the 'Charlie's Angels' of reality TV," he said. "You'll hear my voice. But obviously it's something that we'd want to control in every aspect and produce and make sure that we were doing something really quality."
Could this be the Massachusetts version of "Jersey Shore" we've all been waiting for?
