Leah Remini is ready to return to the small screen, albeit with a new home.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “King of Queens” star has landed the female lead in ABC’s comedy “Don’t Try This at Home.”

Remini will play a newspaper editor raising three kids with her husband (Matthew Lillard).

Other TV credits for Remini include an arc on “Saved by the Bell.”

ABC is now in the pilot business with both of CBS’ top comedy leading ladies from the late ’90s. In addition to Remini on “Don’t Try This at Home,” “Everybody Loves Raymond” Emmy winner Patricia Heaton is playing the lead in the comedy “The Middle.”

Also at ABC, Rebecca Cheskoff will take a lead in the comedy “This Little Piggy,” while Spencer Breslin has been cast in the network’s untitled Anita Renfroe project.
