Leah Remini gets new sitcom by “Always Sunny” creator

Leah Remini is set to topline Fox’s off-cycle half-hour multi-camera comedy pilot from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creator Rob McElhenney, Rob Rosell and 20th Century Fox TV.

The untitled comedy centers on a woman, Jean (Remini), her ex-husband and her new wife who work together to raise a family in middle America.

Remini’s Jean considers herself a patriot who loves her country and firmly believes in everyone’s right to be left alone. Jean in many ways fits the stereotype of a typical conservative. However, she leads a very progressive lifestyle as she is now married to a woman, Betty. Together, they’re raising Jean’s two boys with the help of the boys’ father and Jean’s ex-husband, Richie, who currently lives in the garage.

The pilot will be filmed for midseason 2019 consideration and beyond.
