LEAH REMINI WILL AIR EPISODE WITH DANNY MASTERSON'S ACCUSERS ON FEBRUARY 18 - 2019-01-15
The Underground Bunker has learned that an episode of A&E's Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath featuring Scientologist actor Danny Masterson's accusers will air on February 18, more than a year after it was pulled over concerns by the Los Angeles District Attorney's office.
In March 2017, it was revealed that the Los Angeles Police Department was investigating the That '70s Show actor for multiple violent rapes. The three initial accusers, all former Scientologists, had come forward to the LAPD the fall before, and by April 2017 the case was sent by the LAPD to the LA District Attorney's office to consider filing charges. Remini then taped the episode for her show's second season with the initial three accusers (a fourth accuser, who was never a Scientologist, came forward to the LAPD after the episode was completed).
Leah's second season began airing in August 2017, but in November 2017 we revealed that the DA's office had asked her not to broadcast the Masterson episode while they were still considering whether to charge the actor. Now, more than a year since then, A&E has decided that DA Jackie Lacey has had enough time to make up her mind about charges, and will air the episode.
