Following the success of his A&E Network series¬†Wahlburgers (pictured), which recently secured an additional 18-episode order, actor Mark Wahlberg’s latest project for the net,¬†docudrama Breaking Boston, has landed a March 13 premiere date.

The series, which is based on Wahlberg’s own experiences growing up in Boston, follows four working-class, 20-something women trying to escape the downward mobility of a town where education, employment and opportunities are scarce. Each has experienced hardships through toxic relationships and family situations, but all are looking to improve their circumstances.

“These are real women telling their original stories of trying to break out of what’s expected of them,” said Wahlberg in a statement. “The odds are difficult, but I believe they can make it.”

Breaking Boston is produced by 44 Blue Productions, Closest to the Hole Productions, Leverage Entertainment and Bill Thompson Productions.
