Unrealistic Ideas, the nonscripted production company launched by Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Archie Gips, is partnering with producer Paul Sadowski on the docuseries. Wahlberg, Levinson, Gips, and Sadowski will executive produce. Producers plan to shop the project, which is in development, to broadcast and cable networks.
