NBC's The Wall
I’m going to be brutally honest here, when I received the invitation to attend a pre-taping of The Wall, I had never seen the show so I was a tad bit hesitant, but as I read further along the pre-taping would benefit our favorite charity. We were given the opportunity to join Andrew on stage to play in a Charity Game before the taping of The Wall, this was going to be exciting. Andrew’s team asked us all to create a poster representing a charity we wanted to raise money for. One person from each family got to place their poster on The Wall and play the game. Our group had a really great representation of charities including St Judes, CHLA, UCLA Mattel, CA Autism Foundation, Common Sense Media, Kawasaki Foundation, Help Us Adopt, The People Concern, and the NRDC. We raised over $2,000 that NBC will be generously donating to the winning charities!
After attending the taping, I must say the show is thrilling! I was at the edge of my seat wondering where that ball was going to land. I found myself wanting to scream saying, “go to the right” to hit the million.One of the best things about summer vacation as a child was getting to stay home and watch The Price Is Right, yes, I am a Price is Right junkie. Watching The Wall reminded of my childhood years. The Wall pumps up morale, jump-starts creative problem solving and pulls families together.The Wall is truly a memorable show for the entire family!
The Wall is packed with drama and action, this is a game that the entire family can root for together! Executive Producer LeBron James presents a challenge infused with the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, where regular people can achieve their dreams with one bounce of the ball. Hosted by comedian (and Nerdist founder) Chris Hardwick and set in a large, glossy arena centering on the colossal 40-foot wall, the gameplay involves quick thinking, shrewd strategy, and a little luck. 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.
