Are you a game show fan? If so, you may be interested in “The Six,” America’s version of the popular Russian game show “What? Where? When?.” According to reports, ABC recently ordered a presentation of the program.

Produced by Merv Griffin Entertainment, “The Six,” will feature a team of six players who must work together to answer questions presented by viewers. Players have one minute to solve the logic-based questions, with the team earning one point for each correct response. Incorrect answers will earn a prize for the author of the question, as well as a point for viewers.    

What? Where? When?” has been on the air in Russia for nearly 35 years and is the #1 game show in the country. Russian-based actor Alex Reznik, a huge fan of the show, first brought the concept to Merv Griffin Entertainment. Since then, representatives have spent approximately two years acquiring rights to the program. No word on when the show will hit US airwaves. 

Here is a clip of the popular show.
