We promised that we would let you know as soon as there was further news on what was to come next.
I cannot say anything more than is covered in this story at this time, but as this is a Hollywood “insider” sort of publication, I thought I should put it here as everyone who reads this blog will be interested. Here is the article in full:
The relevant information that will be of most interest to readers here:
Leah Remini, creator, host and producer of A+E’s Emmy-winning docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, has signed an exclusive first-look deal with independent content studio Critical Content to develop and produce unscripted programming through her No Seriously production company.
Under the pact with Critical Content, led by CEO Tom Forman and Studio President Jenny Daly, Remini will spearhead series across multiple genres that address subjects from advocacy and victims’ rights, to family and comedy.
The first project under the deal is Seeking Justice, an anthology docuseries which reunites Remini with her Aftermath partner Mike Rinder. It will investigate, infiltrate, and hold accountable other groups and organizations that have for too long gotten away with physical, mental, and sexual abuse, including victims of Scientology.
“Whether in front of the camera or behind it, Leah is a passionate storyteller, completely fearless, totally hilarious” said Forman and Daly in a joint statement. “Critical has always, proudly, been in the truth to power business, and we’re beyond excited to help Leah make shows that matter.”
“I’m thrilled to have a home at Critical Content and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to continue to create content and provide a platform for important stories to be told. Tom and his team have already been amazing collaborators and I look forward to a long and successful partnership,” said Remini.
Remini created, produced and hosted the Emmy-winning A+E docuseries series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, which recently ended after three seasons. She was nominated for an Emmy earlier this year and, last month, she was honored by the International Documentary Association for her work. In 2017, the show also won a Television Critics Association Award and a Producers Guild Award. In 2019, Remini received the Impact Award at the Inaugural Critics Choice Real TV awards.
Remini, who also has extensive comedy experience and is known for her starring role on the hit CBS sitcom The King Of Queens, is working on her second memoir.
