NKOTB News for September 14

Here is a preview of "Boston Metal" which debuts on the National Geographic Channel on September 21.


BOSTON METAL - PREMIERES FRIDAY, 9/21 at 9P/8C on NAT GEO from Jarrett Creative Group on Vimeo.

According to this article from Boston.com, Donnie worked on the show with his brother Bob. Currently National Geographic plans to air only the pilot episode, but it could get picked up if it has a good response. Here is the article:
Reality TV could soon become wall-to-wall Wahlberg. That’s because in addition to the previously announced reality show Mark Wahlberg is making about the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and the one Donnie Wahlberg is currently working on about the Boston Police Department, Bob Wahlberg has produced a pilot called “Boston Metal,” about a family-owned scrapyard in Brockton. (The first and so far only episode airs Friday at 9 p.m. on National Geographic Channel.) “We’re hoping, based on ratings and response, that it’ll be picked up,” Bob Wahlberg told us Friday. (Donnie is executive producer of “Boston Metal.”) The show follows the Morrissey family, owners of ECO Recycling Systems Inc. in the city of champions. What makes the show appealing, Wahlberg said, are the people: John Morrissey Sr. and John Morrissey Jr. are both former mixed-martial arts fighters, and the daughter has a knack for finding treasure in the trash. (Think “Storage Wars” or “American Pickers.”) “It’s a scrapyard so it brings in a different kind of character,” said Bob, who’s become something of a reality TV connoisseur while working on the show. “Most are super honest people, but some are trying to sneak something by. I think people will find it entertaining.”

The other TV series that Donnie is working on - "Boston Blue" - will premiere next year on TNT according to Club Metro. The show will follow the men and women of the Boston Police Department's gang unit.

The second season of Blue Bloods is now on DVD and Entertainment Tonight posted this video (which includes a short clip of Donnie) from the DVD's bonus features:



In the mean time, Donnie is enjoying life whether he is riding in the car or jumping in the ocean:
