Mark Wahlberg has closed a deal with A&E for a pilot set in his hometown of Boston. The Shooter star, along with his business partners Stephen Levinson, Kevin Harrison and Bill Thompson, is currently working on the TV show entitled Teamsters.
“A&E strives to remain ahead of the curve while delivering first class auspices to our audience,” said A&E president Bob DeBitetto. “We’re so proud to collaborate with this group of producers and offer an authentic point of view from the unique characters this world provides.”
Teamsters is based on members of the city’s Local 25 union. The series will provide a first-hand look at the legendary union in the city of Boston. “We believe A&E is the perfect venue to create a cutting-edge show that promises to be like nothing else on television,” Levinson said.
The reality-based show will be produced by Wahlberg’s Closest to the Hole, Levinson’s Leverage and Harrison’s Transition Production companies.
