Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade will serve as executive producer and host of an American spin-off of the British game show The Cube, which is scheduled to premiere in 2021.
Peter White of Deadline reported Wednesday that Wade was selected to headline the show for its initial 10-episode run.
ITV announced in July it was going to reincarnate the program for a special five-episode run that will include a celebrity show.
"I'm excited to join my WarnerMedia family in bringing this exciting and entertaining game show to the U.S. As a former athlete, I enjoy competition and I appreciate the skill set needed to compete in high-tension and fast-paced environments.
As executive producer and host, I'm looking forward to teaming up with contestants to embark on a quest that is both physical and mental, as well as adding my own flavor to the show that will make this a fun family viewing event."
