For the first time ever, Breonna Taylor‘s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, will share his story about what happened the night his girlfriend was killed by police gunfire in a botched drug raid.

BET has announced they have partnered with CBS for Say Her Name: The Untold Story of Breonna Taylor, an interview with Walker, that will air Saturday, October 17 at 6pm ET. on BET. 

The interview, conducted by CBS’ Gayle King, will include Walker and his parents and compare his account of events versus the timelines presented by Louisville police officers and the Kentucky Attorney General.

The special will also look at the global protests that have emerged from Breonna’s case, a discussion of where the case currently stands, and what “justice looks like for Breonna and Kenneth.”

Meanwhile, on Sunday, ABC will bring back Supermarket Sweep, the classic game show where contestants race around a supermarket and grab the most expensive items to win.

Hosted by comedian Leslie Jones, the new show will be similar to the original and follow three teams of two as they compete against one another using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise. The winning team will end up playing in a “Super Sweep,” a race against the clock to find five products in order to win $100,000.

Supermarket Sweep kicks off with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, October 18 starting at 8pm ET on ABC.
