Undaunted by his dead-on-arrival reality show “Breaking Boston” — it aired for a single episode before being yanked — Mark Wahlberg is moving ahead as executive producer of another Boston-based reality show. According to Deadline, A&E has given the green light to a show tentatively titled “The Big Brew Theory.” It centers on four MIT grad students who pool their cash to open a microbrewery. But wait, there’s a twist! The fellas hire a beautiful MIT undergrad to help. We’re guessing both love and hops may be in the air. While “Wahlburgers” has been a hit for A&E, “Breaking Boston” was a flop when it debuted in March. It was promptly dropped.
