EXCLUSIVE: Following the success of Wahlburgers, A&E has greenlighted another Boston-set reality pilot executive produced by Mark Wahlberg about a fledgling business enterprise. Tipping its hat to hit comedy The Big Bang Theory, the half-hour project is tentatively titled Big Brew Theory. It follows four quirky and highly intelligent MIT grad students who have pooled their life savings to achieve their dream of creating a home grown micro-brewery and team up with a beautiful MIT undergrad to launch their business. The Big Brew Theory reunites frequent collaborators Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Stephanie Drachkovitch and Bill Thompson. This marks Wahlberg’s fourth reality pilot at A&E, all set in his native Boston. Two of them, Wahlburgers, which he produces with Levinson and Drachkovitch, and Breaking Boston, which he produced with Levinson, Drachkovitch and Thompson, went to series. Wahlberg, Levinson and Thompson also previously produced a Boston teamsters pilot for the network. The Big Brew Theory is produced by 44 Blue Prods, Closest to the Hole Prods, Leverage Entertainment, Dunlop Entertainment and Bill Thompson Prod. Executive producers are Drachkovitch for 44 Blue Prods., Wahlberg for Closest to the Hole, Levinson for Leverage, Scott Dunlop for Dunlop, Thompson for Thompson Prods and Shelly Tatro, Drew Tappon, Lily Neumeyer and Devon Graham for A&E.
