Leah Remini — the former Scientologist who wrote a tell-all about the religion last year — has landed a TV deal with A&E about the controversial church.
The “King of Queens” star’s already filming the series that will “detail Remini’s experience with Scientology and her 2013 departure as well as focus on the families of other church members,” the Hollywood Reporter said. It will debut next year.
Buzz surrounding the Remini series began when watchdog blogger Tony Ortega reported Remini was shooting a show to focus on the church’s alleged practice of “disconnection” to keep members from interacting with nonbelievers.
A church rep did not get back to us, but it has previously said of Remini, “She needs to move on with her life instead of pathetically exploiting her former religion, her former friends and other celebrities for money and attention to appear relevant again.
