Fox is bumping last season’s surprise hit, Moment of Truth, for its Japanese game-show import, Hole in the Wall.

Hole in the Wall will premiere Thursday, Sept. 11 at 8 p.m., taking the slot initially reserved for Truth. Fox said the second season of Truth will now premiere midseason.

Hole in the Wall is based on a Japanese concept in which two teams of three players must try to contort their bodies individually or as a team to fit through a hole in a moving wall. If they don’t pull it off, the wall pushes them into a pool. The team with the most points at the end of the game will win $25,000, with the chance to play in a bonus round for $100,000.

The concept, distributed internationally by FremantleMedia, has been picked up across the globe, from the United Kingdom to China.
