Brendan O'Carroll's comic creation will front Mrs Brown's Celebrities, a studio format created by 12 Yard Productions.
The series will involve two contestants competing in a quiz with the help of five famous faces from the worlds of sport, music, television and film. Irish mother Mrs Brown will oversee the game show.
A non-broadcast pilot is being filmed and a full series is expected in 2013.
O'Carroll said: "It will be fun to see how Mrs Brown copes with a quiz as she knows as much about trivia as my backside knows about snipe shooting! A new adventure, and Mrs Brown is always up for a new adventure! It's great to be part of the BBC One family."
Mrs Brown's Celebrities was commissioned by controller of BBC One Danny Cohen, controller of BBC entertainment commissioning Mark Linsey, and executive editor of BBC entertainment commissioning Alan Tyler.
