THE HOLIDAYS GET A LITTLE BRIGHTER THIS NOVEMBER ON A&E NETWORK
WITH THE RETURN OF BOSTON'S FIRST FAMILY - THE WAHLBERGS
NEW SEASON OF 'WAHLBURGERS' PREMIERES WITH BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES
ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16 AT 10PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 20, 2016 - A&E Network gears up for the holidays with a double helping of laughs that only the Wahlberg family can serve up. This season showcases the booming Wahlburgers franchise as well as the amazing family dynamic fans have grown to love. "Wahlburgers" premieres with back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, November 16 at 10:00PM ET/PT and 10:30PM ET/PT on A&E.
"Wahlburgers" continues to chronicle the lives of the Wahlberg family including matriarch Alma and her sons Mark, Donnie and Paul along with the rest of their family and friends. This season, we visit Mark on the "Transformers: The Last Knight" set where he clashes with director Michael Bay when he secretly enlists actor Josh Duhamel to join him in wearing Wahlburgers hats while filming some high octane scenes. The pressure is on for Donnie when he arrives in Coney Island to throw the ceremonial first pitch for the Brooklyn Cyclones' Minor League baseball team only to run into former New York Met Mookie Wilson. Plus, Wahlburgers gets a visit from the WWE's Bella Twins (Nikki and Brie Bella), Paul gets a tour of London from 80's pop singer Rick Astley and country music star John Rich opens his hot spot Redneck Riviera right above Wahlburgers in Las Vegas. Could this mean a possible new business partnership on the horizon?
"Wahlburgers" is produced for A&E Network by 44 Blue Productions, in association with Closest to the Hole Productions, Leverage Entertainment and Donnie D Productions. Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Donnie Wahlberg are executive producers. Executive producers for 44 Blue Productions are Rasha Drachkovitch, Archie Gips and David Hale. Executive producer for A&E is Devon Hammonds.
