A&E is airing a special one-hour interview with actress Leah Remini (The King of Queens, Old School) who will talk about how she got involved with the Church of Scientology. Remini famously left the Church of Scientology in 2013. Since her departure from the Church she has written what has become a New York Times bestselling book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. And her popularity continues to soar.
Remini just reached 1 million followers on Instagram — making her more popular than ever — and now she’s hosting her own docu-series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. On the eight-episode series, Remini will interview “victims of the Church of Scientology despite public attempts to discredit them.” Remini said in a statement: “For too long, this multi-billion-dollar organization bullied victims and journalists to prevent the truth being told. It is my hope that we shed light on information that makes the world aware of what is really going on and encourages others to speak up so the abuses can be ended forever.” Leah Remini Scientology Special will air Tuesday, November 1 at 10pm on A&E. Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premieres November 29 at 10pm on A&E.
