Scientology True Crime: A First Look at Nancy Many's Docudrama Airing January 16 - 2013-01-10
If you've read Nancy Many's memoir, My Billion-Year Contract, you know that she had one of the most amazing careers in Scientology — from working directly with church founder L. Ron Hubbard, to spying for the church on its enemies, to running the Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles, and to being sent to the Rehabilitation Project Force prison detail in Florida while she was five months pregnant.
To our amazement, all of that gets covered in the one-hour dramatization of Many's life which is airing next week on ID, the true-crime sister network of the Discovery Channel, at 10 pm Eastern. The episode kicks off a new ID series called "Dangerous Persuasions," which portrays good people manipulated into doing bad things. In Canada, the show debuts on January 18 on the History Channel, and will kick off a new series by the name of "Brainwashed." Well-acted and produced, the detailed and accurate docudrama also features Nancy narrating the story, as you can see in the teaser video the network has posted.
We have more peeks at the program which demonstrate how carefully its producers re-enacted this troubling slice of Scientology history.
