It's been almost a year since Leah Remini left the Church of Scientology, of which she was a member for more than 30 years. However, now the King of Queens alum and former The Talk co-host is working on a reality show with her family that she says has made her clan closer.

"We're learning new ways to reconnect with each other, so it really has brought us closer together," Remini told Ellen DeGeneres about working on the show together on Wednesday's episode of Ellen. "We're stronger and we're having so much fun together and this is something that the family loves to do."

Remini, 43, also recently competed on the fall installment of Dancing with the Stars. She came in fifth place.

The Leah Remini Project is set to premiere on TLC this summer. Check out more of Remini's interview below:
