 "The Cube" is headed to Fox.

The network has confirmed that it has a deal with All 3-owned Objective TV  to bring the hit ITV game show to the U.S.

A first-look deal between Fox and the British company was in place weeks ago, but Fox just agreed to formally develop the show as a series.

"The Cube’s" format has players trying to win big bucks by performing simple tasks in a high-pressure environment. It uses high-tech camera work to add to the drama.

NBC this week announced plans for a similar-sounding show, "Perfect 10." But Fox had already put "The Cube" on the fast track for development, so this isn’t a case in which Fox is copying the Peacock.

TheWrap this week first reported on the possible game show war and the fact that "The Cube" was on the market in the States.  

Take a look at "The Cube" below. TVMoJoe was hooked on this show the moment we saw it:
