Twelve of actor Bill Cosby’s accusers are to be interviewed in a one-hour special premiering Thursday (September 17) on U.S. net A&E.

The Lincoln Square Productions-made special, Cosby: The Women Speak, will provide first-hand accounts from women accusing the 78-year-old of alleged assaults, druggings, unwanted advances and molestation. The special offers a “decade-by-decade” examination of the accusations to reveal new information and insight into the case, while discussing why the women – who include both new and past accusers, according to the net – are coming forward.

The special will also explore how comedian Hannibal Burress brought the allegations against Cosby back to the forefront of media attention, and how the entertainer’s spokespeople have since responded to the controversy. Interview subjects include actress Louisa Moritz, publicist Joan Tarshis and model Beverly Johnson.

Jeanmarie Condon serves as senior executive producer with Jim Hill Senior serving as executive producer for Lincoln Square Productions. Meanwhile, Shelly Tatro and Brad Abramson will exec produce for A&E.

Cosby: The Women Speak will air on September 17 at 9 p.m. EST/PST across A&E.
