US media giant WarnerMedia has announced that it is bringing the reboot of award-winning British game show The Cube to the US with a series order, executive produced and hosted by NBA legend Dwyane Wade.

The Cube US Host 6Aug2020The show features pairs of contestants who must demonstrate skill, nerve and determination by braving The Cube, where they attempt seemingly simple physical tasks within the confines of a glass box in the hope of winning a major cash prize. Working against the clock, each pair has nine lives to complete seven games, each worth an increasing amount of money, as they move closer to the jackpot. The ten-episode, 60-minute series is slated to premiere next year.

Building upon the existing UK format, the game show will include new twists and turns to keep the contestants on their feet and allow Wade to show his own skills. The updated series will introduce a new component, a call-to-action for our sports phenom host to enter The Cube and lend his athletic prowess and compete on behalf of the contestant. Additionally, the series will have an elevated feel, launching with the latest augmented GFX and camera technology.

“The Cube is a massively popular national treasure in the UK Honestly, I can’t believe it hasn’t been snapped up here in the US before now,” said Corie Henson, EVP and head of unscripted programming for WarnerMedia’s TBS, TNT and truTV. “It is a visually stunning, but super simple game that everyone can play and almost no one can win. Stepping into The Cube takes focus, determination and calm under pressure, and I can’t think of anyone who demonstrates those qualities more than Dwyane Wade (pictured). Dwyane is a legend who sets the standard on and off the court, and now Americans will have the once in a lifetime chance to compete with him by their side.

The Cube is made by Objective Media Group America, an all3media America company and distributed by all3media international. The series is executive produced by Dwyane Wade and his production company, 59th & Prairie Entertainment, as well as Layla Smith and Jilly Pearce for Objective Media Group.
