Fox has ordered “You’re Back in the Room,” the network announced Wednesday.

The network has ordered eight one-hour episodes of the show, which is based on the UK series of the same name. “You’re Back in the Room” (working title) features contestants who are challenged to complete a variety of simple, everyday tasks, from frosting a cake to painting a picture after being hypnotized.

The series is set to begin production in early 2016 with additional details, including the host, to be announced. “You’re Back In The Room,” produced by Tuesday’s Child, debuted in the U.K. as the number one new unscripted entertainment series in 2015, ending its first season as a top 10 series overall.

The series will begin its second season in 2016 and the format has been reproduced in France, The Netherlands and Australia and optioned internationally in multiple territories, including Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Denmark, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Portugal and Spain.

“You’re Back in the Room” is executive-produced by Tuesday’s Child in association with BBC Worldwide Productions. Karen Smith serves as executive producer.
