In the first trailer for Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, unveiled by Entertainment Tonight, Remini spills hot tea about Church of Scientology as she interviews its former members. Alleging physical and sexual abuse perpetrated by Church of Scientology higher-ups, including its leader David Miscavige himself, the King of Queens star lays it all out in what is possibly the most intense minute you’ll experience this week.
“My whole life I was a very dedicated Scientologist. I didn’t want to find out what I’d done was a lie,” the 46-year-old says. “Something inside of me was saying, ‘Get them out of this thing.'”
“Fight for your family, fight for your daughters, your sons,” she adds. “Let’s get to the abuses. Let’s get to the abortions.”
The docuseries follows Remini’s tell-all memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, in which she detailed her experiences with the church and her eventual 2013 exit.
“This series is about sharing the truth about Scientology,” Remini says in a statement about the upcoming eight-parter. “Truth born out of very personal experiences. Truth that is shocking, things I did not expect to find when I embarked on the journey of making these shows.”
“Even though I had been a member of the Church for a long time, I was stunned by some of the things I learned. There is a lot more to this story than anyone knows,” she continues. “And this series is breaking ground in bringing that information to light.”
Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premieres on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.
