Leah Remini has left Scientology behind her just in time to land her own reality series on TLC, which will feature the day-to-day life of Leah, her family, and her team.
"Leah is a no-nonsense, hard-working, relatable mom, wife, daughter, and sister. Her sharp humor and unfiltered family are a perfect match for the network," said Nancy Daniels, GM, TLC. "This series continues our focus on creating compelling series about remarkable families, using heart and humor to anchor it to the TLC brand."
According to the press release for the series, the former "King of Queens" star still sees herself as the girl from her Brooklyn neighborhood, despite her success in Hollywood. So the series will watch as she takes on life's challenges and celebrations, happy to have her family along for the ride. Grounded by a strong work ethic, Leah's an overachiever who keeps the people she loves on their toes – and laughing along the way.
Joining Leah in the series will be her husband of 10 years, Angelo, their 9 year-old daughter Sofia, her mother and stepfather, and her sister and brother-in-law. Completing the picture will be Leah's team -- her housekeeper, her daughter's British nanny and Leah's assistant, who really wants to be an actress.
TLC has ordered 12 half-hour episodes, set to air Summer 2014.
