Sky One has bought the rights to the hit US gameshow Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
Adults can turn to a panel of schoolchildren for help
The Fox show, where an adult can win $1m (£506,000) by answering questions meant for children, drew 26 million viewers for its US debut.
It will be renamed Are You Smarter Than a 10-Year-Old? and Sky plans to air 20 hour-long primetime episodes and 50 daytime shows.
It will go out in the autumn but there has been no word on a presenter.
Richard Woolfe, director of programming for Sky One, Two and Three, said: "Are You Smarter? has become nothing short of a phenomenon since debuting in the US.
"We're thrilled to be bringing it to a new audience in the UK. What's not to love about 10-year-olds gaining the intellectual high ground over nervous adults, fearing humiliation in front of a live studio audience?"
Contestants must answer five questions on various subjects to guarantee a cash prize. If they answer 10 correctly then a final bonus question will secure them the top prize.
The adults also have five schoolchildren who they can turn to if they stumble on a question - sometimes without knowing what they are going to say.
