U.S. cable network A&E and executive producer Mark Wahlberg (pictured) are heading to Boston to shoot an unscripted series about the city’s Teamsters Local 25 union.

Teamsters (working title) will be executive produced by Wahlberg’s Closest to the Hole Productions (Entourage, Boardwalk Empire), Leverage Management and Transition Productions, and feature the 11,000-member strong Teamsters Local 25 in Boston, a world that provided the setting for hard-boiled feature films like The Fighter and Martin Scorsese’s The Departed.

The executive producers are Wahlberg (Closest to the Hole), Stephen Levinson (Leverage Management), Kevin Harrison (Transition Productions) and Bill Thompson. David McKillop will exec produce for A&E.
