The Cube is a game show based on the British original broadcast on ITV from 2009 until 2015 and again from 2020 (albeit with an increased top prize, more specifically called The Million Pound Cube).
Originally intended to be presented by Neil Patrick Harris for CBS in 2010 with a $500,000 top prize, it was rejected by the network's management. On October 25, 2020, it was reported that an American adaptation of The Cube was entering production, with an aim to air in 2021 on TBS, presented by former basketball player of Miami Heat Dwayne Wade.
Working on their own or as team, each pair has nine lives to complete seven games that are worth an increasing amount of money as they inch closer to taking home the $250,000 jackpot.
An online game called "Beat the Cube" can be played through its official website at TBS.com.
Countries that have previously aired their versions of The Cube include:
United Kingdom (country that originated the program)
At the time, the show was briefly compared to another popular stunt & dare show on NBC called Minute to Win It hosted by Guy Fieri.
