Leslie Jones To Host, Executive Produce ‘SuperMarket Sweep!’ Reboot

Published: Thursday 5th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Leslie Jones broke hearts last week when she announced her departure from longtime television home, ‘SNL,’ but the comedian is ready to dry those tears and bring the funny with a growing list of ventures for the upcoming year.

In addition to a highly anticipated Netflix stand-up comedy special (set for 2020 premiere), the Emmy nominee is putting back on her hosting heels to bring forth an unexpected reboot of beloved game show, ‘Supermarket Sweep.’

Details inside:

 

‘The iconic game show that features contestants racing through the aisles of a grocery store packing their carts with the most valuable items, first debuted on ABC in 1965. Bill Malone was the host.  A revival of the series featuring David Ruperecht premiered on Lifetime in 1990.’ – source

 

While the first revival of the high paced competition was canceled in 1995, reborn in 2000, then canceled again in 2003, Jones is looking to bring the series to a brand new audience.  Making history as its first African American and female host, she’s also serving as its executive producer.

As of time reported no production or tentative release date has been released, but news has it multiple networks – including Netflix, ABC, Fox, and even her former network home NBC – reportedly bidding on it.
