PASADENA, Calif. -- Leslie Jones is joining the ranks of television game-show hosts.
The former “Saturday Night Live” star will host a new version of “Supermarket Sweep,” which originally aired on ABC from 1965-67.
The show follows three teams of two as they compete using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise to win cash prizes.
ABC said Wednesday that production on 10 episodes will begin in the spring. An air date will be announced later.
Jones will be an executive producer. She says she tried out unsuccessfully for the show years ago, and bringing it back to life “is my ultimate redemption story.”
