The new reality television show will follow the brothers' exploits and challenges in running a successful burger joint since its opening in 2011. Named after the restaurant, Wahlburgers will look at the inner workings and relationships within the Hingham, Massachusetts joint. Wahlburgers serves as a perfect hangout spot for the brothers and their friends and family, including cousin Johnny Alves a.k.a. Johnny "Drama," who is said to have inspired Mark Wahlberg's Entourage character.
"We're thrilled to partner with the entire Wahlberg family as they graciously lift the curtain to share this new side of their story," said David McKillop, Executive Vice President and General Manager of A&E Network, in a statement, via Variety. "This series offers viewers a new take on the celebrity reality series showcasing one of America's favorite families."

The docuseries will give the lesser-known Wahlberg brother, Paul, his chance to shine as the man in charge of the brothers' burger joint. It is unclear how much Mark and Donnie will appear in the series due to their other acting commitments which could mean that Paul and the guys' mother Alma will take centre-stage.

The restaurant, which is just south of Boston, has been such a success since its opening that the brothers are said to be considering an expansion into Canada next year with plans for a new location at Toronto's SoHo Metropolitan Hotel. Wahlburger's menu famously includes the brothers' childhood burger favourites that have seemingly now become favourites of pretty much everyone else in the area now.
Wahlburgers will debut on A&E on the 22nd January at 10:30 p.m.
