HOLLYWOOD –“Word Slam!,” a behind-the-scenes doc about a vocabulary-based game show, is slated to air this fall.

For the third consecutive year, GSN has partnered with Bank of America Student Banking on the live onstage “Word Slam!”

This year’s 11-week tour kicks off March 5 in Albuquerque, N.M., and includes 10 additional cities. One winner from each city will be awarded $10,000 in college tuition. The 11 grand prize winners will then face off in the Tournament of Champions for an additional $25,000 in tuition money.
