Open calls set in Philly for LeBron James-produced game show

Open calls will be held in Philadelphia in September for a new NBC game show produced by NBA superstar LeBron James and @midnight host Chris Hardwick.

Titled “The Wall,” the trivia-based show features a ball falling through a 40-feet wall of pegs to slots with assigned prizes, like Plinko on “The Price is Right.” 

“Played by contestant pairs, this is an unpredictable journey with giant swings of fortune and millions of dollars passing through the contestants' hands throughout the hour,” reads the website“Take your best shot at $12,000,000!”

Glassman Media, one of the production companies behind the show, is promoting an open call in Philly on Sept. 5 and Sept. 7 at Chickie’s and Pete’s and Sharon Baptist Church, respectively.

"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," Hardwick said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter"I’m sorry, NBC, I’m hoping to give away a lot of your money."

No release date has been set, but King James is already jazzed up for it.

“I’m excited about this series because it’s different than anything on TV right now. It’s got everything — excitement, drama and action — and it’s something the entire family can watch and root for together,” he told The Reporter.
