Nov. 24 (UPI) -- The new competition series Child Support -- featuring Ricky Gervais and Fred Savage -- will debut on ABC Jan. 5.

"Child Support, the US game show I created with Banijay Studios, will premiere Friday, January 5 at 8 PM on @ABCNetwork. It's hosted by Fred Savage, and features adult contestants and interactions between me and a group of 5 kids who say the most unpredictable things. Enjoy," Gervais tweeted.

"Contestants are asked to answer 10 questions correctly to earn the top prize," a network press release said. "If they answer incorrectly, the contestants have a chance to be saved by the five kids who have been asked the same question by Gervais."

Savage is a former child star best known for his work on The Wonder Years and The Grinder. Gervais is the creator and star of the original, British version of The Office, as well as Extras, Derek and An Idiot Abroad.
