Leah Remini may go down in history as Scientology’s greatest threat. As an actress, Remini has used her publicity to shed light on the organization that is intent on branding itself as a church, while many say it is actually a cult. Remini’s mother joined Scientology when Leah was 9-years-old. She grew up in the environment and at one point, was outspoken about Scientology’s positive aspects. She, along with other celebrities such as Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, and Kirstie Alley would frequently sing Scientology’s praises. Leah Remini isn’t singing anymore.
Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath not only gives the viewer an inside look at how the organization is structured but also reveals what happens when people leave. Each week, Remini takes us on a deep journey into the secretive world of Scientology and its Clearwater, Florida headquarters.
