"Breaking Boston" is a reality docu-drama series on A&E that features a group of working class women coming of age with the odds stacked against them.

The series 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.

The series joins them at a critical time in their life; where they're trying to shed their pasts in order to pave way for their future. Kristina, 29, faced jail time when her ex-boyfriend was caught running a drug ring out of their shared home but was acquitted and is now trying to move on with her new boyfriend Mikey while pursuing a career in hair styling. Valerie, 22, had two DUIs and a jail sentence on her record before she graduated high school and is now trying to attend college with a tarnished record and no financial aid. Noelle, 25, recently suffered the loss of her brother to a tragic car accident and is finding it difficult to move on with her life while living at home and supporting her mother. Courtney, 25, is a single mom with a 7th grade education and a dream to get into beauty school.

Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levison and Bill Thompson are executive producers. Executive producers for 44 Blue Productions are Stephanie Drachkovich and Jennifer Colbert.
