Fox orders smart-kid game show, 'Our Little Genius,' from Mark Burnett

Posted on

Fox announced today that it has picked up Our Little Genius, a new game show from Mark Burnett (Survivor, Are You Smarter Than a 5th-Grader), in which really smart six- to 12-year-olds must answer a series of increasingly challenging questions to win hundreds of thousands of dollars. Parents of the young Einsteins can stop the game at any point and keep the winnings. Eight episodes have been ordered, and Genius will likely debut in a post-American Idol slot early next year, a Fox spokesperson confirmed.
