Channel 4 piloting gameshow in a cube
Channel 4 is making a gameshow pilot set inside a four-metre-square perspex cube.

The Cube, fronted by Justin Lee Collins, will see contestants take on a series of physical tasks.

Players will be given nine "lives" to complete up to seven games. The cube will be surrounded by a studio audience and the completed show will make extensive use of CGI.

Adam Adler, who is working on the show for Objective Productions, said: "It will be like a penalty shoot-out, with tasks that the contestants could do 99 times out of 100. But saying something is simple will, in itself, pile on the pressure.

"The 'lives' aspect gives it a computer game feel and it will be the very opposite of light entertainment."
