White is most famous for his role on Family Matters as geeky next-door neighbor Steve Urkel. Since the show's cancellation in 1998, he's had guest appearances on House, Psych and Are We There Yet?

Production on the half-hour game show begins next week and is slated to premiere in 2012, the network said.
