Leah Remini’s Next A&E Project to Tackle Jehovah’s Witnesses | Hollywood Reporter

Leah Remini has her sights set on a new project for A&E, one that will keep her focused on religion.

According to sources, Remini will produce a special for A&E that focuses on Jehovah’s Witnesses, to air during a break following season three of the Emmy-winning Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. The religion, while based on biblical teachings, has come under fire for some practices such as ousting or shunning members who have dissenting views, refusing to participate in politics or government, not celebrating birthdays or Christmas, and for multiple predictions of armageddon that have, obviously, yet to pan out.

During a May 17 FYC panel discussion at the Linwood Dunn Theater in the Academy’s Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study in Los Angeles featuring the Emmy-winning team behind Aftermath — and moderated by The Hollywood Reporter editorial director Matthew Belloni — Remini hinted that her team had several projects on her company’s slate.
