A&E will air a special featuring interviews with Bill Cosby‘s accusers, the network announced Monday.

The one-hour special, “Cosby: The Women Speak” will premiere Thursday, Sept. 17, and will feature interviews with over a dozen women, including actress Louisa Moritz, publicist Joan Tarshis and model Beverly Johnson.
