New game show 'The Wall' premieres Tuesday, January 3 (8 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC.

Two previews of 'The Wall' are scheduled. The first preview will air Monday, Dec. 19 at 10 p.m. following the 'America's Got Talent: Holiday Spectacular' and the second on Monday, Jan. 2 at 10 p.m. following the premiere of 'The New Celebrity Apprentice'.

Hosted and executive produced by actor, comedian, author and TV personality Chris Hardwick, 'The Wall' will offer a pair of deserving teammates cash prizes. The rules are simple: Get a question correct and a green ball will fall down the wall and add the value of the slot to the players' winning total. Miss a question and an ominous red ball will fall and deduct the value from the team. Teammates have to work together to build a huge cash prize.

However, the towering wall is not easily conquered. Wildly unpredictable, the wall is capable of millions of different outcomes. 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 pair's faith in each other will be tested as the teammates play the remainder of the game without any communication.

'The Wall' is a collaboration between SpringHill Entertainment and Glassman Media with James, Hardwick, Maverick Carter and Andrew Glassman serving as executive producers. 'The Wall' was developed by Glassman Media in conjunction with CORE Media.
