"I want to thank NBC for their partnership, Andrew Glassman for his vision, and all the fans for their support." "We're thrilled that viewers have become as captivated by 'The Wall' as we are," said Meredith Ahr, President, Universal Television Alternative Studio, NBC Entertainment. "We have been in pursuit of a brand new high-stakes game show for a while and are so happy to have developed it with LeBron James. Every time a player releases a green or red ball, the tension is palpable because each drop can affect the contestants life in the most extraordinary way and that makes for great television." "A big event, family-friendly game show that can open a night is a wonderful asset joining NBC's powerhouse reality brands such as 'The Voice,' 'America's Got Talent,' 'American Ninja Warrior' and 'Little Big Shots,'" said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. "Chris Hardwick is masterful as he conducts this high-stakes rollercoaster, and the dramatic ride of the contestants ends with a thrilling decision that pays off differently every time and increases viewership significantly across the hour."
