Fox picks up 'The Cube'

Game show hails from the U.K.

Fox has made a deal with All3Media to pick up hit U.K. game show "The Cube" -- right as NBC has ordered a very similar-sounding series called "Perfect 10."

In both shows, contestants have to complete very simple physical challenges on stage in a limited amount of time (standing on one leg, catching a ball, etc).

The pickup could put Fox and NBC in a competitive reality show race that hasn't been seen in a couple years -- when the networks faced off with "Don't Forget the Lyrics" and "The Singing Bee." But there are no specifics on whether Fox will greenlight to series at this point.
