What does Twilight actor Kellan Lutz have in common with human darts? They'll all be on Fox later this spring.

The network announced Wednesday that it has ordered eight episodes of the new reality competition Bullseye, a show where four men and four women face a series of physical challenges and hit a target with their own bodies. It's keeping in line with Fox's recent spate of family-focused reality fare, and it's set to premiere Wednesday, May 27, at 9 p.m.

"I am a huge fan of extreme sports, and for me, nothing beats an adrenaline rush, which is why I am so excited to host this series," said Lutz. "I love the concept of physicality and strategy combined with the most awesome challenges that will blow your mind. I am looking forward to watching these competitors push themselves out of their comfort zones and I'll be on the sidelines cheering them on, and probably wishing it were me trying to hit the bullseye!"

Lutz, who's appeared in The Expendables 3 and The of Legend of Hercules since the Twilight franchise concluded, will be joined by comedian Godfrey as his co-host.

In the months since big swing Utopia fell through, Fox's reality orders under Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman have been targeted towards family co-viewing. Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? returns from years off the air this summer, and clip show World's Funniest Fails recently nabbed an extended order.

Bullseye comes to the network from Endemol Shine North America, producers who are well-versed in physical challenges, thanks to Wipeout and Fear Factor. And, since contestants aren't just in it for fun, $50,000 will be on the line during every episode.
