NBC Commits to Another Season of The Wall


NBC has ordered another 20 episodes of The Wall, a popular game show hosted by Chris Hardwick (Talking Dead).

The Wall looks on as contestants compete for the chance to win up to $12 million. The show was developed by Glassman Media in association with CORE Media and is produced with Universal Television Alternative Studio. It is a collaboration between SpringHill Entertainment and Glassman Media, with LeBron James, Hardwick, Maverick Carter and Andrew Glassman serving as exec producers.

“Not only is The Wall intense, heartwarming and funny, but if the ball drops into a high-dollar slot, an entire family’s fortune can be completely changed for the better,” said Paul Telegdy, the president of the alternative and reality group at NBC Entertainment. “Huge congratulations to Universal Television Alternative Studio, Glassman Media and SpringHill Entertainment for producing a series that is not only compelling television but has the potential to be life-changing for our contestants.”

“This is the result of a dedicated team of people making The Wall their collective passion project from the very start,” noted Glassman. “I’m thrilled to be continuing on and grateful to Paul, Meredith and NBC for helping us bring this game, and the positive stories it tells, to life.”

“We’re proud to see people connecting with The Wall both at home and around the world in a way you don’t usually see with game shows,” added Carter. “We created the format with the idea that families would all come together and root for these incredible stories, so to see that actually happening on a global scale is exciting and something we hope continues to grow.”
