NBA superstar LeBron James is making moves in the entertainment business, and his latest is a game show for NBC called “The Wall.”
James’ and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment and Glassman Media are behind the series, hosted by comedian Chris Hardwick, which will premiere Tuesday, January 3 at 8 p.m. EST.
“What’s so great about ‘The Wall’ is that it’s giving these everyday, hard-working people the opportunity to change their lives in an hour,” Carter, who’s serving as an executive producer, recently told Business Insider of the show. “Over the course of one episode, you get to know these people and you hear their amazing stories, so you find yourself really pulling for them. It’s emotional, it’s intense, it’s exciting, and we can’t wait for people to experience it.”
