Leah Remini's next television debut will be personal.
The actress' reality show, "Leah Remini: It's All Relative," will premiere on TLC July 10.

"My family is not so different from the rest of America," she told People magazine. "I think people love to see that, ‘Oh, just because she's on television and in Hollywood, I can still relate to her.’"
