    Usually there is a tab you lift up next to the shifter, and insert a screwdriver to release the lever.

    As for the cause, check to see if you lost your brake lights--if you did, then your brake light switch or brake light fuse is bad---either of those problems will prevent the shifter from movement.

    If not those two causes, then the shift-interlock solenoid might be bad.

    Have you had any success getting your Impala out of park since your post? If you want for us to help you get connected with a dealership to get this checked out, we can be reached at socialmedia@gm.com (include your name and contact information, the last 8 digits of your VIN, and a brief recap of the situation).
