Mark Wahlberg's 'Shooter' Becomes a TV Series

Given the many multimillion-dollar box-office hits with his name and face on the posters, Mark Wahlberg isn't exactly the type to transition from movies to television — unless we're talking about Wahlburgers, or his efforts as a producer.

To that end, Wahlberg is once again assuming a producer role, but not a starring one, by adapting one of his own feature films as a television series. Deadline reports he and frequent collaborator Stephen Levinson have teamed with Paramount TV for a small-screen version of Shooter, the 2007 Antoine Fuqua action film that starred Wahlberg as a retired Marine sniper who's framed for a crime.

According to the website, the Shooter series is being set up at TNT, with Underworld: The Awakening and The Shield veteran John Hlavin tapped as writer and executive producer.
