NBC Picks Up "Wall of Fame" For Eight Episodes

A few days ago, I had written about "a major network" casting for a new game show called Wall of Fame. It looks like the "major network" that will be picking up new show will be NBC. The announcement was made today that NBC has ordered eight episodes of the hour-long game show. As the producers, Endemol USA is looking to to add another hit game show to its résumé in addition to Deal or No Deal and Wipeout with the pending premiere of the new primetime series. On Wall of Fame, families can win big bucks by answering pop culture trivia questions correctly and by guessing whether or not members of the celebrity "Wall of Fame" can provide correct answers to the same questions. 

David Goldberg, Chairman and CEO of Endemol North America, states that "with its dramatic game play and celebrities supplying a steady stream of comedy, 'Wall of Fame' has the ingredients to be the next hit." Judging from the show's premise, this show sounds good on paper. However, this was also the same case with Who's Still Standing and that atrocity pretty much spoke for itself. Nevertheless, I am very impressed with NBC's choice of game shows lately. This reminds me of the small surge of game shows NBC aired during 2006 including the short-lived Show Me The Money1 vs. 100 and Identity

The show is now casting. Go to Reality Wanted if you are interested in auditioning your family for Wall of Fame. The casting call ends July 26.
