Former Home and Away actor Axle Whitehead will host Seven’s upcoming game show, The Wall.
It features a tall pegboard with giant balls dropped into cash zones with couples for whom a life-changing amount of money adds emotional drama.
“While living in America I’ve become a massive fan of the US version,” said Whitehead. “The Wall is about giving good people, great opportunities. To be the Australian host, blows me away!
“Australia has never seen anything like this,” he continued. “The chance to win millions in one hour is going to have people on the edge of their seats, guaranteed.”
Brad Lyons, Seven’s director of production, said “The Wall is like nothing we’ve seen. Take it on and get it right and you can win big. It’s fun, unpredictable and addictive and Axle is the perfect guy to guide our contestants through the highs and lows of competing against this four-storey money machine.”
Seven has confirmed the show will film outside Australia. Versions currently exist in the USA, France, Canada, Germany and Spain.
It will screen later this year.
