Wahlberg and McCarthy tied the knot in August outside of Chicago. 90 guests attended the 20 minute ceremony. McCarthy was escorted down the aisle by her son Evan. Wahlberg shared with Us Weekly that he “won the lottery” by marrying McCarthy. She added that, “We are ready to live happily ever after.”
It looks like their fairytale includes a reality show.
The happy newlyweds now want to share their marriage with the world. Wahlberg and McCarthy recently signed a deal with A&E to produce a reality show about their relationship. Donnie Loves Jenny will be a 10-episode series. The first episode, an hour long special, will document their wedding. The remaining nine episodes will be 30 minutes and highlight the ups and downs since they said I do.
Donnie Loves Jenny premieres early next year. In a statement, Wahlberg and McCarthy had this to say about their upcoming series:
Not only have we found a new home together, we have found the perfect place for our exciting new projects to live with A&E Network. We’re so excited about this deal and look forward to a long and successful relationship creating entertaining and provocative unscripted programming with our partners at A&E. Our feeling is, who better to make our first show for the network about than about us? We love working together and with our crazy schedules, this gives us the chance to both work and play together.
Wahlberg and his family currently star in another reality show on A&E: Wahlburgers. The reality series follows the Wahlberg family as they try to run a restaurant business. McCarthy has guest starred on the series. The Executive Vice President of A&E David McKillop said that he was thrilled to join the couple through their next chapter. He also added, “Viewers have enjoyed following their relationship on the Wahlburgers and we look forward to sharing the next part of their journey.
The Wahlburgers production company 44 Blue Productions, along with D&J Productions, will produce Donnie Loves Jenny.
