The series is now casting teams of 2 from all over the United States including right here in Alexandria, Virginia (see below). Those wanting to tryout for ‘The Wall’ may either attend one of the open casting calls scheduled for next month or audition online. The show is looking to cast teams of 2 of all kinds, couples, cousins, siblings, etc. Those cast for the show will have a chance to win some serious cash.

‘The Wall’ will be hosted by Walking Dead’s talk show ‘Talking Dead‘ and @midnight host, Chris Hardwick. According to THR, the series is being produced by LeBron James’ and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment and Glassman Media. Chris Hardwick is also named as one of the show’s executive producers. While the actual amount of cash that is up for grabs on the new series has not been announced, the show does describe the amount as ‘life changing’ and has stated that NBC will potentially be giving away millions. The actual amount will be determined by the game.
‘The Wall‘ is described as a Price is Right Plinko type game where balls are dropped over a large board of pegs, falling through the pegs until the ball comes to rest in a slot which will be marked with a prize amount.
While ‘The Wall’ is yet to premiere, the series is already casting for season 2. Host Chris Hardwick commented “I love game shows, and partnering with LeBron James and NBC to potentially give away millions of dollars to people who deserve it is an incredible opportunity,” also adding, “I’m sorry, NBC, I’m hoping to give away a lot of your money.”
