TLC will begin airing the reality series Leah Remini: It’s All Relative on July 10.

The 12-episode show stars the former King of Queens actress (pictured) and her family, which includes her husband Angelo, her nine-year-old daughter Sofia, her mom Vicki, stepfather George, sister Shannon and her husband William.

Produced by Gurney Productions (Duck Dynasty) and Remini’s No Seriously Productions, the series also breaks the fourth wall and shows Remini and family members interacting with producers and cameramen as they film in her home.

“Anything goes including unfiltered conversations about body hair grooming, sex, and a certain tramp stamp (or… is it lower back tattoo?),” the Discovery-owned network said in a statement.

Two episodes will air back-to-back on July 10 beginning at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT. The network says the first episode will follow the action as Leah and Angelo decide to throw a party for friends that stuck by them after the couple quit the Church of Scientology. Meanwhile, her mom Vicki muses how she will be remembered after she dies so the family stages a mock funeral in her honor.

TLC unveiled the series during its upfront presentation in New York City in April. The female-skewing’s 2014 slate will emphasize themes of family, relationships and weddings with 44 new and returning unscripted series amounting to 500 hours of programming.
