MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

At this weekend’s Cooper-Young Festival, NBC will be casting for its newest game show, "The Wall." 

If you remember the game Plinko, you will understand what the excitement is all about. 

"The Wall" is a trivia game show on which one drop of a ball by a player could change their life.

“A lot of money, a lot of life changing things are on the line. It gives normal people the opportunity to change their life in just one night,” NBA superstar LeBron James said in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

James and comedian Chris Hardwick will host a casting call to find teams of people with big personalities.

“When they hear the name LeBron James, they hear basketball,” casting producer Crystal Smith said.

“The show is played with teams of two,” casting producer Quintin Strack said. “We are looking for great personalities. Teams of two: sisters, brothers, mother, son, father, daughter, whatever. You got sometimes best friends but two people who have a lot of energy.”

If you think you have what it takes, don’t miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime.

“Everyday people could win a lot of money, and I think that's what is fun about shows like this because anybody could watch it and anybody could root because they can see themselves playing this game,” Strack said.

“This is a show that is literally for good people that deserve an opportunity at a better life,” Smith said.

Casting will take place Friday at New Direction Christian Church from 3 to 7 p.m., and again on Saturday at the Cooper-Young Festival from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
