About This Show

“Breaking Boston” follows a group of four blue-collar women in their twenties trying to break the cycle of their peers in a town where education, employment and opportunities are hard to come by. Each one of them has already hit rock bottom via destructive relationships or bad choices, but they’re all leaning on each other and looking for a way out.

Executive producer Mark Wahlberg mirrored this series on his own life and experiences in Boston. Recently earning his high school diploma at the age of 42, Mark can certainly relate to bad influences of peers and lack of emphasis on education. “These are real girls telling their original stories of trying to break out of what’s expected of them,” said Wahlberg. “The odds are difficult, but I know they’re going to make it.”

“Breaking Boston” is produced for A&E Network by 44 Blue Productions, in association with Closest to the Hole Productions, Leverage Entertainment and Bill Thompson Productions.
