Back it June, it was reported that actress Leah Remini had begun work on a television series about the Church of Scientology, which Remini severed ties with in 2013 after spending almost her entire life involved with the organization. She has since become a vocal critic of their practices, including details about her disillusionment with the church in her 2015 memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. Now The Hollywood Reporter is relaying that A&E is the network shepherding her new series to air. It doesn’t have a title yet, but it will reportedly focus on both Remini’s experience with and departure from the church, as well as the effects of Scientology on the families of its members. A&E has not officially confirmed the series, but it was reportedly filming throughout the summer and is expected sometime early next year.
