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.
