Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by NBA superstar LeBron James and series host Chris Hardwick, THE WALL is a quiz show that uses a four-story-high Plinko wall to determine how much each team wins or loses after each question. The rules are simple: Get a question correct and a green ball falls down the wall and adds the value of the slot to the players' winning total. Miss a question and an ominous red ball with fall and deduct the value from the teams' total. Teammates have to work together to build a huge cash prize. As the game progresses, the stakes get even higher when one player is sent into an isolation room behind the wall. It is here where the pairs' faith in each other will be tested as they play the remainder of the game without any communication. On Monday, December 19, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered a sneak-peek episode of this series, with the official series debut scheduled for at two-night premiere on Monday, January 2, 2017 at 10pm and Tuesday, January 3 at 8pm.

On Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the second season of THE WALL, with Chris Hardwich returning to host the gameshow that puts more than $12 million on the line every night -- and up to $3 million on a single drop. The season debut features two contestants: Milton & Aaryn. On Monday, December 4, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered "Deck the Wall: A Holiday Spectacular," a one-hour Christmas-themed episode of THE WALL. Cassandra, a mother and pastor from Aurora, Ohio, teams up with her daughter Victoria, a social worker, to take on THE WALL challenge. In this special episode, all trivia questions are holiday-themed. With tremendous cash prizes at stake, a big-money win will uplift the holiday spirit for this mother-daughter duo as well as their community ... but will the "snowballs" drop their way?
Season 3 of THE WALL -- originally scheduled to debut with back-to-back new episodes on Thursday, June 20, 2019 -- will now premiere mid-July 2019.
