Leah Remini Joins Cable Series Deadline
The former “King of Queens” star will play Nicki, Stuart’s sister. After finding out her husband has been having an affair, she moves to Manhattan, where her brother is sharing an apartment with two other men and is living next door to his divorce attorney, played by Kristen Johnston.
The casting marks Remini’s return to multicamera sitcoms since “The King of Queens” went off the air six years ago, the piece notes. She has since appeared on the single-camera comedy “Family Tools” and recently competed on “Dancing with the Stars.”
