Peter Berg is now directing two HBO pilots with ties to Boston. As we previously reported, Berg is attached to direct the pilot for “The Leftovers,” based on the novel by Belmont author Tom Perrotta. Now, Berg has signed on to direct a pilot produced by Dorchester’s Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson. The Hollywood Reporter says Wahlberg’s show, which will star Johnson, is a dramedy about retired athletes living in Miami. Not coincidentally perhaps, Johnson and Wahlberg costar in the new movie “Pain & Gain.”
