A&E Network has set a late November premiere date for its forthcoming exposé on the Church of Scientology featuring actor Leah Remini, months after the project was rumored to be in production.

The previously announced Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath (8 x 60 minutes) from The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC) will delve into the stories of abuse, heartbreak and harassment actor Leah Remini (pictured) says she has experienced after having left the church.

Each episode of the series will also feature interviews conducted by Remini with former high-ranking Scientology executives who’ve departed from the church.

IPC’s Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman serve as executive producers alongside No Seriously Productions’ Remini. Alex Weresow serves as showrunner and executive producer.

Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premieres Nov. 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.

Remini has been highly critical of Scientology since her public split from the church in 2013 after 30 years. She has since released a book on the topic, entitled Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology (Ballentine Books).
