Most people think of Mark Wahlberg as just a movie star but as the HBO Max original documentary series Wahl Street reveals, he’s also an entrepreneur.
The above trailer, produced by Boston-based Viewpoint Creative, reveals that Wahlberg owns his own clothing line, Municipal; a gym studio, F45; restaurant chain, Wahlburgers and a production company, Unrealistic Ideas. Like everyone else in the past year, Wahlberg had to navigate challenges presented by the pandemic. Meanwhile, he also was trying to maintain and grow his disparate lines of business and produce a documentary series about all of it.
“You know why this show’s gonna be such a hit?,” Wahlberg says in the trailer. “Because it’s a “f—-ing s—- show.”
Also lookout for a quick cameo from Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams, who’s getting her workout/high-level-assassin training on in an F45 gym.
Wahl Street is produced by Unrealistic Ideas, founded by Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Archie Gips. Wahlberg, Levinson and Gips are executive producers along with Sarah Skibitzke. Carolina Savverdra serves as co-executive producer.
Wahl Street, which includes six episodes, starts streaming April 15 on HBO Max.
