KCET-TV, the Los Angeles public television station that split from PBS in January, has closed a deal to sell its landmark Hollywood studios to the Church of Scientology for an undisclosed sum.

As a result, KCET, the largest independent public TV station in the country, will leave the 4.5-acre property at 4401 W. Sunset Blvd. It is currently surveying the Los Angeles area for new studio space.

"This is part of the new era for KCET; this is part of the second stage of the transformation of KCET from an affiliate of PBS to an independent media center," KCET president and CEO Al Jerome told The Hollywood Reporter. "We are in active discussions with several facilities. We are looking for the right environment for our future."
