While Mark Wahlberg is obviously a movie star, next seen in “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” he’s also build a nice career producing TV shows, including “Entourage” and “Boardwalk Empire.” His latest is a pilot for “The Big Brew Theory” from A&E, which was announced along with their other pickups.
The show will follow four highly intelligent MIT grad students who want to launch their own micro-brewery in Boston. They enlist a beautiful female MIT undergrad and set out to make their dream come true.
Should “The Big Brew Theory” go to series, it will join Wahlberg’s other A&E series, “Wahlburgers.” From there, the crossover seems like an easy sell. One Wahlberg show about beer, another about hamburgers? The sky is the limit.
