Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg & Donnie Wahlberg Tie Up with Lionsgate


Lionsgate has signed a first-look deal with Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg for unscripted projects through their newly formed Work Baby Productions banner.

The three-year pact covers the development and production of unscripted/reality television, documentaries, short-form productions and narrative and nonfiction podcasts. As part of the deal, Lionsgate company Pilgrim Media Group will provide development support and be the production services entity for sold projects.

“Our focus as a couple, and as partners, is to bring light to projects that we are passionate about,” said Wahlberg and McCarthy Wahlberg. “Our new partners at Pilgrim and Lionsgate share that passion, and we are so excited to work with them to make these dreams reality.”

“Donnie and Jenny are a perfect fit for Lionsgate and our commitment to creating leading unscripted television programming,” said Craig Piligian, president of Lionsgate nonfiction television and Pilgrim CEO and chair. “We know they will be excellent partners, and we look forward to helping them build a diverse and hugely successful slate of programs.”
