Mark Wahlberg's Going to Produce a Show About Nerdy Microbrewing

Did you know Mark Wahlberg is currently producing a show about his family's burger chain? It's called Wahlburgers, and it shows on A&E.

Well, apparently A&E likes it, because they just signed Marky Mark to produce another food-related reality TV show, this time about beer. It's going to be called The Big Brew Theory, and it's going to feature three graduate MIT students out to fulfill their dream of owning a microbrewery.

Not too much information has been released about the show just yet. All I can tell you is the three grads are going to be pooling their life savings (I can't imagine the life savings of three grad students is much) into their brewery, and they'll be helped out by an attractive -- of course -- female undergrad.


No street date yet, but I'm hoping it's not another straight Beauty and the Geek.Follow Stick a Fork In It on Twitter @ocweeklyfood or on Facebook! And don't forget to download our free Best Of App here!
