Leah Remini to Produce TV Series Exploring How Scientology ‘Rips Apart Families’

“King of Queens” star famously left the Church in 2013

Leah Remini is continuing her crusade against Scientology with a new TV series that will no doubt give Church leadership headaches.

The “King of Queens” star and former Scientologist is working on a new show spotlighting Scientology and how it “rips apart families,” according to a blog post by Tony Ortega, who worked on the hit documentary “Going Clear.”

“We’ve confirmed that Leah’s series is currently shooting footage, and appears to be on a fast track,” Ortega wrote of the new show.

Representatives for Remini and Scientology did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment.

Remini made a very public split with the Church in 2013, and went on to publish a tell-all book, “Troublemaker,” about the inner-workings of Scientology and Church leadership.

Remini also pulled no punches in a “20/20” interview regarding the Church, revealing that she was punished for telling Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to “get a room.” Remini also said she was asked to bring along her friend Jennifer Lopez to Cruise and Holmes’ wedding, presumably to convert her to Scientology.

The Church has previously denied all of Remini’s allegations, releasing a statement claiming everything in her book is false.

“Leah Remini knows the truth she conveniently rewrites in her revisionist history,” the statement reads in part. “The real story is that she desperately tried to remain a Scientologist in 2013, knowing full well she was on the verge of being expelled for refusing to abide by the high level of ethics and decency Scientologists are expected to maintain.”
