Mark Wahlberg behind Highway to Heaven remake

MARK WAHLBERG is bringing late actor MICHAEL LANDON's beloved TV drama HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN back to the small screen as the executive producer of a re-imagined version of the show.

Landon, who died in 1991, played an angel helping troubled souls on earth in the series, which ran for five seasons in the 1980s.

America's A&E network will be the home for Wahlberg's remake, which has the blessing of Landon's estate executors.

The Fighter star has a longstanding record of success as a TV producer - his shows Entourage, Boardwalk Empire and In Treatment have all been hits. He is currently working on a reality TV show about his family's restaurant chain Wahlburgers.
