Mark Wahlberg is set to star alongside musician brother Donnie in his new family reality series 'Wahlburgers' filmed at the fast food joint of the same name.

The 'Pain and Gain' star may be ripped to perfection, but that doesn't mean he doesn't like to hit the junk food now and again; something that runs in the family for the Wahlbergs with his older brother Paul Wahlberg being the executive chef of cosy burger restaurant 'Wahlburgers' in Hingham, Massachusetts.

Both Mark and his older brother Donnie Wahlberg (with whom he belonged to the 90s pop group New Kids On The Block) are set to have pivotal roles in the new reality show for which footage has been filmed over the last year.

The show will document everything from business troubles to family dramas and, of course, the overall fulfilment of being part of a successful family company.

Meanwhile, Mark has been busy promoting his latest film 'Lone Survivor'; an adaptation of the true story of tragic SEAL mission Operation Red Wings in which he stars as Marcus Luttrell. The film has scored stunning reviews at the AFI Festival, with Tim Grey of Variety calling it a "major contender for best pic, director and screenplay."

Donnie has also been busy filming his crime drama series 'Blue Bloods'.

The show will air on the A&E network and makes its premiere on January 22nd 2013.
