Malcolm Gladwell and Mark Wahlberg are teaming up to bring a new spy show on HBO.  Yes, you read that right: Donnie Wahlberg’s brother and Sideshow Bob are making a television show together.

There are no details whatsoever about what the show is about, other than it’s a spy thriller.  But if I could go out on a limb for a second and play the art of a prophet, I’m going to guess each episode will be about 3 hours long, and will involve a spy from around the Boston area.  You will be left up to your own devices to understand the plot–if there’s a plot at all–and you will come away with absolutley nothing gained from time spent watching the show.

  • Actually, the episodes themselves will only be an hour, but each will be followed by a ponderous two-hour moderated discussion in which Gladwell drives home the message of the week with a condescending synopsis and makes reductive analogies between the plot and something totally unrelated going on elsewhere in the world.
