DWYANE WADE STEPS UP TO THE PODIUM TO HOST THE CUBE

WarnerMedia is rebooting the award-winning game show ‘The Cube’ with three-time NBA Champion, thirteen-time NBA All-Star, and Olympic Gold medalist Dwyane Wade as host and executive producer.

The adrenaline-packed British series, confines constants in a glass box as they demonstrate skill, nerve and determination as they attempt to complete simple physical tasks in order to win a grand 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. Building upon the existing U.K. fan-favorite format, the game show will include new twists and turns to keep the contestants on their feet and allow Dwyane to show his own skills.

“I’m excited to join my WarnerMedia family in bringing this exciting and entertaining game show to the U.S.,” said Dwyane Wade. “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.”

The updated series will introduce a “helping-hand” 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.

When talking about the show’s exciting premise Corie Henson, EVP and head of unscripted programming for TBS, TNT and truTV. Said that it is surprising that no one has thought about picking it up again – “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. 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 ten-episode, 60-minute series is slated to premiere next year.
