Leslie Jones leaving ‘SNL’, reportedly checking out ‘Supermarket Sweep’ reboot
Dana Edelson/NBC(NEW YORK) — Following news Tuesday that Leslie Jones is leaving Saturday Night Live after five seasons to pursue TV and film projects, comes word that one of those projects will be a reboot of the classic TV game show Supermarket Sweep, according to Deadline.
The show, which first aired on ABC from 1965-67, followed by revivals on Lifetime from 1990-95 and Pax from 1999-2003, challenges contestants to race around a supermarket and grab as many of the most expensive items as they can. The team with the highest total wins.
The revival is currently shopping for an outlet, with ABC, NBC, Fox and Netflix all in the hunt.
