Mark Wahlberg and A&E have reached a deal for an upcoming reality TV show. Called The Big Brew Theory, Wahlberg will serve as producer. The show will follow four MIT graduate students who join an MIT undergrad and work on creating a micro-brewery. The show will be based in Boston.
Wahlberg is already one of the producers of the reality show about his family's restaurant business. Called Wahlburgers, the show and the restaurants share the same name. A&E must be pleased with Wahlburgers, with Mark Wahlberg, or possibly both for them to hand him the reins to another reality show. This makes the fourth show he has produced for the network.
The Big Brew Theory (where do you suppose they got the name for this show?) features the aforementioned MIT students as they (the grad students) pool their life savings in an effort to create the micro-brewery of their dreams. They bring in the undergrad, who just happens to be female and sexy, to assist in their endeavors.
The city of Boston must love Mark Wahlberg. The Big Brew Theory will provide yet another positive view of the city via reality TV. Wahlberg clearly loves Boston, too. He and his brothers grew up in Dorchester.
#BostonStrong you will always be my home and the greatest city in the world.

Mark Wahlberg has achieved success as a producer in other facets of entertainment besides reality TV. He is one of the producers of The Fighter, Entourage, Boardwalk Empire, Prisoners, and Lone Survivor, among other film and TV productions. He will appear on the big screen in what is expected to be a summer blockbuster, too. Transformers: Age of Extinction premieres in U.S. theaters on June 27th.
Will you be tuning in to The Big Brew Theory? Do you expect it to be more about the micro-brewery process or more about the young hot female undergrad?
