NEW YORK, April 4 (UPI) -- Syfy says it has ordered six episodes of "Exit," an American version of the hit Japanese series "Dero!"

Curt Doussett from "America's Lost Treasures" and "Hazard Pay" is to serve as host of the show, which is set to premiere June 4.

"'Exit' is a heart-pounding adrenalin rush of a competition series that truly embraces imagination, forcing its eager contestants to experience twisted and visual brain puzzles while navigating booby-traps, receding floors, collapsing walls, bottomless sand pits and much more," Mark Stern, Syfy's president of original content, said in a statement.

In each episode, four teams of two contestants will battle to escape a series of four "mind-bending and seemingly diabolical rooms," the network said.

"The winning team must beat the clock while solving rapid-fire brain games and navigating a bevy of terrifyingly entertaining puzzles in order to be the only team to truly exit and win the $10,000 prize."
