U.S. broadcast net Fox has ordered a game show pilot from Endemol USA that features comedian and Conan O’Brien sidekick Andy Richter as host.

Step Up, currently in production, gives contestants the chance to win big cash prizes by stepping on squares with hidden dollar amounts underneath, while avoiding moves that could send them home with no winnings.

“In addition to our diverse slate of programming, Endemol USA has put a significant amount of effort into developing the next hit game show,” said David Goldberg, chairman and CEO for Endemol North America, in a statement. “This is the second primetime game show we will produce this year. Step Up is everything you hope for in a game show. It’s a clean and straight-forward premise, filled with high stakes and drama, played on a spectacular stage.

“Our host, Andy Richter, is a very funny and bright comedian,” he added. “He is genuine, relatable and possesses real stage presence. We are very lucky to have him.”
