Pilot Scoop: Leah Remini Joins White Van Man

Former Talk cohost Leah Remini is eying a return to sitcoms, with a role on ABC’s White Van Man single-camera comedy pilot.

Based on a BBC series, White Van Man revolves around a guy (played by Kyle Bornheimer, Perfect Couples) who is forced to put his dreams on hold in order to take over the family handyman business from his father (The Closer‘s JK Simmons).

King of Queens alum Remini will play Terry, a licensed masseuse who is the younger sister of Simmons’ character and mom to a teenage boy (Aim High‘s Jonny Pemberton).

The White Van Man cast also includes Edi Gathegi (aka House‘s Dr. “Big Love”).
