The revival of the classic TV game show premieres October 18
ABC just dropped the first official trailer for their revival of the classic TV game show Supermarket Sweep. The upcoming series, hosted and executive produced by Emmy award-nominated comedienne and actress Leslie Jones, is a fast-paced and energetic series following three teams of two as they battle it out using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise to win big cash prizes.
The original format aired on ABC from 1965 to 1967 and went on to become a global sensation. It was adapted in 13 international territories and, most recently, relaunched in the UK. Supermarket Sweep is produced by Fremantle.
Executive producers include Leslie Jones, Hunter Seidman and Jennifer Mullin, Alycia Rossiter and Wes Kauble.
Supermarket Sweep premieres Sunday, October 18 at 8|7c on ABC.
