Outspoken actress Leah Remini is getting her own reality show on TLC, the network announced. Production began Wednesday (March 5) on the 12 half-hour episodes scheduled to air sometime in summer 2014.
“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,” says TLC GM Nancy Daniels in a press release. “This series continues our focus on creating compelling series about remarkable families, using heart and humor to anchor it to the TLC brand.”
The show will feature Remini, her husband of 10 years, Angelo and their 9-year-old daughter Sofia, along with her mom and stepfather. The series will focus on Remini’s down-to-Earth lifestyle and how she’s never left her Brooklyn roots behind despite living in Los Angeles.
