Donnie Wahlberg Goes VR in ‘Wahlburgers’ Behind-the-Scenes Clip (Exclusive Video)

A&E reality series gets all high-tech for Season 7 premiere

When Donnie Wahlberg takes you behind the scenes in “Wahlburgers,” it’s like you’re really there. Or at least it seems that way in the new exclusive clip obtained by TheWrap.

For the Season 7 premiere of the A&E reality series Wednesday, Wahlberg takes viewers on a trip through the kitchen of the family’s flagship burger joint, where he spends the appropriate amount of time razzing his brother Paul, who busies himself with the cooking operation. Donnie Wahlberg owns the restaurants in partnership with his brothers Paul and Mark, star of “The Departed” and other film hits.

The hook is that this behind-the-scenes clip was filmed using technology from virtual-reality firm Ovrture, which is looking to mainstream the VR experience.

The “Wahlburgers” clip will be available on Littlstar, Facebook 360, and YouTube 360, compatible with desktops, mobile phones, Google Cardboard, Facebook’s Oculus Rift and Samsung’s GearVR head mounted displays.

“Wahlburgers” is executive produced by 44 Blue Productions, which houses Ovrture. “Wahlburgers VR” is produced by Mike Drachkovitch, Rasha Drachkovitch, David Holechek, Dan HolechekNatasha Pierson, and Randy Donaldson.
