Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Family Matters icon Jaleel White is set to host a new syndicated game show called The Flip Side.

The series will challenge two teams of players to anticipate how two different groups of people feel about the same issue through a series of multiple-choice questions.

It is expected to premiere this fall.

"Game shows have been a bright spot in syndication -- and network prime-time -- the last few years," Wendy McMahon -- president and CEO of CBS News and Stations and CBS Media Ventures -- said in a statement Monday.

"Their loyal viewers tune in more times per week than any other genre. We are excited to bring a fun concept, combined with the exceptional comedic skills of host Jaleel White, to the marketplace with The Flip Side. It's a perfect addition to any station's lineup with the flexibility to play in multiple time periods or a game show block."

Recent acting gigs have included Hustle, Me, Myself and I and The Afterparty.
