Los Angeles-based Endemol USA, the production company behind Fear Factor, Deal or No Deal and Big Brother, said this morning that the firm is in a production deal with online user-generated content site Metacafe, to launch a new online, late-night game show.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed; the firms said that the series is expected to launch this spring.
