Wahlberg played boxer Micky Ward in the 2010 drama, which earned his co-stars Christian Bale and Melissa Leo Oscars, and now the movie star/producer is keen to shine the spotlight on the real people behind the movie.

Ward's sisters will front the new show about the females who passionately juggle family, work, and relationships on the tough streets of Boston -- Wahlberg's home town.

The untitled project, which received a pilot order by producers at A&E, is due to begin filming in the coming weeks, reports Deadline.com.
