Prime-time game show The Floor will be adapted in the US.
Rob Lowe is taking The Floor as host and producer of FOX’s new quiz show. The Floor is a battle of the brains in which 81 contestants stand on 81 squares on a massive game show floor, competing for a $250,000 prize. The show will debut this midseason on FOX.
