HBO Max has ordered a second season of the Max Original and Critics Choice Real TV Awards Best Business show nominee “Wahl Street” from actor Mark Wahlberg. The 10-episode order is produced by Wahlberg’s Unrealistic Ideas.
As the pandemic world adjusts to a new version of normal, Wahlberg, like many, is facing a multitude of new challenges, both personally and professionally. With 2021 fraught with plenty of obstacles and potential failure, Wahlberg and his team juggle the demands of their business portfolio, with notable brands such as Municipal, F45 and Wahlburgers, among others.
In addition, Wahlberg celebrates major milestones — from turning 50 to working alongside his wife and business partner, Rhea, who, serving as a creative consultant for Municipal, launches the first women’s collection for the brand.
“Last season, fans gravitated to Mark’s unwavering resilience, commitment to self-reflection, and his unique ability to innovate his business strategies to weather this global and unprecedented pandemic,” Jennifer O’Connell, EVP of nonfiction and live-action family programming at Max, said in a statement. “I’m eager to see what’s on the horizon for Mark, his family and his team.”
Wahlberg says the show reveals a behind-the-scenes look at his “busy” life with few filters.
“The daily grind looks different for everyone, but we all have to work hard to provide a future for our families,” he said. “Hopefully, the series will keep inspiring people to achieve their own dreams too.”
