News of a potential Wahlburgers reality television show was floating around nearly a year ago, but now it appears that it's really happening. It'll premiere on A&E on January 22nd, 2014, reports BostInno, citing a recent appearance of Donnie Wahlberg on Arsenio Hall's talk show, where he announced it.
Wahlberg told Hall that he and brothers Mark and Paul, as well as their mother, will all appear on the show. The brothers co-own the Hingham burger-focused restaurant, with Paul serving as executive chef. The show will simply be called Wahlburgers — "just like the burgers," said Donnie. It was also a nickname from his childhood, when he wasn't being called "junior jailbird" thanks to his "older brothers being inmates all the time." Also in the works for the Wahlburgers/Wahlberg clan: expansion to Toronto.
