Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Saturday Night Live alum Leslie Jones is set to host ABC's revival of the game show Supermarket Sweep, the network announced Wednesday.

Production on the 10-episode first season is scheduled to begin in the spring.

No premiere date has been set.

"I've always dreamed of being on Supermarket Sweep," Jones said. "Seriously, I tried out for the show years ago; and after getting turned away, I knew I'd have to take matters into my own hands. Being able to bring the iconic game show back to life on ABC is my ultimate redemption story!"
