We figure it's about time that we revealed what we've known for some time about upcoming television projects that feature Scientology, because it's getting really interesting.

We've known for more than a year that a television series about Scientology's disconnection policy has been in production, and that it has run into pushback by the church. (You may remember an earlier story about Karen de la Carriere receiving a threat letter from Scientology, even though she's not involved in the production of the series.) We actually know quite a bit about this series, but we've done a little consulting work for the company producing it, and we're not at liberty to tell you much about it.

But what's especially exciting for Scientology watchers is that the same network is also developing another series, also about the way Scientology rips apart families, and this one is being produced by former Scientology celebrity Leah Remini. We broke the news in 2013 that Leah ditched Scientology, which she had grown up in. The King of Queens actress came out with a bestselling memoir last November, Troublemaker, with juicy anecdotes about what it was like to be a celebrity in a celebrity-obsessed church.
