“The Wall” Heads To Canada

The NBC game show developed by NBA superstar and philanthropist LeBron James, producer Andrew Glassman of Glassman Media and Maverick Carter of SpringHill Entertainment is quickly garnering global attention. Quebecor has acquired the rights from Endemol Shine International to create a French-language version of The Wall. The Canadian version of the show will air on TVA, a subsidiary of Quebecor Media. The US version is currently airing on Global Television in Canada.

The mega-money, “Plinko”-esqe game show has caught the attention of several countries since the show first aired on NBC, including France (debuted February 27 on TF1), Spain (debuted June 23 on Telecinco), Germany (debuts June 30 on RTL) and Italy (debuts in November on Canale 5). At this rate, this show seems poised to become the next international hit game show like Millionaire and Deal or No Deal. Check out an episode of the France’s The Wall: Face au mur in the video below.
