Leah Remini Lands Own Reality TV Show On TLC

Leah Remini could become television's next big reality TV star.

The 43 year-old, who will feature in a 12-episode series, starts production for the new show today (Wed 5th March).

Deadline reports, the series is expected to focus on her family life in Los Angeles.

A "spotlight" will be put on her husband Angelo, who is a devoted father to their nine year-old daughter Sofia, and is in charge of running the family's dinner.

Other family members who will appear in the show are Remini's stepfather, Mother, sister and brother-in-law.

The cast rounds off with Sofia's nanny, who is from England, and her personal assistant whose dream job is an actress, she should be ecstatic about this opportunity then!

"Leah is a no-nonsense, hardworking, relatable mom, wife, daughter, and sister. Her sharp humor and unfiltered family are a perfect match for the network," TLC GM Nancy Daniels said in statement, announcing the project.

"This series continues our focus on creating compelling series about remarkable families, using heart and humor to anchor it to the TLC brand," she added.

This isn't the first time the former 'King of Queens' star has entered the world of reality TV. Although it was a completely different format, the actress appeared on the 17th season of 'Dancing With The Stars' and finished in fifth place.

Remini hit the headlines in summer of last year (2013) due to her walking out of the Church of Scientology.

Over a week ago, she told BuzzFeed, "I don't want to be known as this bitter, ex-Scientologist." Adding, "I'm not trying to bash anybody and I'm not trying to be controversial. I just want people to know the truth."

So if anybody is interested, tune into the reality show, which is eyeing up a summer premiere, to find out more on why Remini chose to leave the controversial religion Scientology.
