TLC Orders Leah Remini Reality Series

TLC has ordered a reality series starring “King of Queens” star Leah Remini and her family.

The skein will focus on how the Brooklyn-born actress may be living in Los Angeles, but has never left her roots behind. The network has ordered 12 half-hour episodes of the untitled project, which is being produced by Gurney Productions.

“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, general manager of TLC, in a statement. “This series continues our focus on creating compelling series about remarkable families, using heart and humor to anchor it to the TLC brand.”

Along with focusing on Remini, the series will follow her husband Angelo and their 9-year-old daughter Sofia. Production begins Wednesday, and the show is expected to premiere this summer.
