HBO Max debuted the original trailer today for the Max Original Wahl Street, premiering April 15 on the streaming service. The 6-episode documentary series offers fans a glimpse into global star Mark Wahlberg’s life.
In Wahl Street, Wahlberg juggles the demands of a rigorous film schedule coupled with an ever-growing network of diverse businesses including his clothing line, Municipal; his gym studio, F45; restaurant chain Wahlburgers and his production company, Unrealistic Ideas.
Along the way, viewers will learn powerful business and life lessons as he navigates the numerous challenges of a global pandemic, all while trying to maintain and expand his vast portfolio. Wahl Street will also introduce the cast of colorful characters that make up Wahlberg’s real-life entourage.
Wahl Street is produced by Unrealistic Ideas, founded by Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, and Archie Gips.
Wahlberg, Levinson and Gips will serve as executive producers along with Sarah Skibitzke. Carolina Saavedra serves as a co-executive producer.
“This series will be an intimate exploration behind the drive that makes Mark Wahlberg one of the most unique stars in entertainment,” said Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president of original non-fiction and kids programming, HBO Max. “Mark’s entrepreneurial spirit is fun to watch and we hope to show both the struggle and triumphs of what it takes to succeed.
“We’re documenting the ups, the downs, the hits and the misses. It’s all the real stuff that’s happening while I’m growing my businesses,” added Wahlberg, “We’re pulling back the curtain and hopefully it’s an opportunity to inspire other entrepreneurs.”
New episodes of the live-action preschool variety series will premiere this fall, exclusively on HBO Max.
Production for The Not-Too-Late Show‘s second season is now underway at Kaufman Astoria Studios in New York. The new season will expand on the last, promising even more excitement, more interactive games, and a whole new look!
Decked out in his suit and tie, Elmo will return as the furry red host with the most; Cookie Monster will continue as Elmo’s co-host, with the rest of the Sesame Street Muppets pitching in as cast and crew. Each episode will feature celebrity guests, musical performances, and plenty of opportunities for preschoolers and their families to get up and play along.
“We’re thrilled to continue creating new Sesame Street adventures with HBO Max, giving children and families new ways to explore the neighborhood they love,” said Ed Wells, Sesame Workshop’s EVP and Head of Global Media and Education.
“This season of The Not-Too-Late Show is packed with all new ways to learn and play together; we can’t wait for kids and families to experience it.”
“Elmo is one of the most beloved characters in the world, and we are so lucky we get to hang out with him on HBO Max,” said Amy Friedman, Head of Kids and Family Programming, Warner Bros. “We think everyone, especially our preschool audience, will be delighted with this reimagined second season – it’s the ultimate family playdate.”
