Have you been itching for more details about Scientology ever since Going Clear (opens in new tab)? Leah Remini, who has very publicly left the secretive church, is here for you. According to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab), she is working on a TV series that looks like it'll be your newest addiction.

The show will air on A&E early next year, and it's already in production. Details about the show are being kept under wraps for now, but will include details from Remini's own life as well as the families of current Scientologists. Scientology blogger Tony Ortega reported the news (opens in new tab) this summer, and noted that it would focus on "the way Scientology rips apart families (opens in new tab)."

Last year, Remini published the tell-all memoir (opens in new tab) Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, where she revealed major dirt about Scientology and its celebrity members like Tom Cruise (opens in new tab). She said that she realized that she didn't want to raise her daughter in the church. "In 10 years, if I didn't want to be connected to the church anymore, my own daughter would be taught to disconnect from me," she said. "I didn't want to create that. I didn't think that would be healthy for her."

Here's hoping Remini has a few more juicy details about Tom Cruise's wedding (opens in new tab) in her back pocket. If so, this show is going to be a must-watch.
