Actress and producer Leah Remini, whose “Scientology and the Aftermath” series was just renewed for a third season on A&E, will produce new unscripted projects for the A+E Networks portfolio after signing an overall, exclusive first-look development deal that expands her relationship with the company.
“Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” received an eight-episode order for season three along with five specials on A&E Network.
The pact marks the first overall deal for the newly created in-house nonfiction production division A+E Originals.
“As part of the deal, Remini and A+E Originals will collaborate to develop and produce new documentary programming, beyond the subject of Scientology, over the next two years,” the company announced.
