Church of Scientology Is Set to Release Their Own TV Network

Church of Scientology Is Set to Release Their Own TV Network

According to the app description in the Google Play store, the network will feature original series such as Meet a Scientologist, Voices for Humanity and L. Ron Hubbard: In His Own Voice. Per the religion's announcement on Sunday, their content will be available on DirectTV, AppleTV, Roku and Chromecast, as well as their app, on Monday.

The church announced on its official Twitter account Sunday that the Scientology Network will debut Monday (8 ET/5 PT).

A channel from the controversial religious group has been rumoured since around early 2017, and a production unit, Scientology Media Productions, was created a year prior.

Over many decades, a range of high-profile actors, musicians and others in Hollywood have at times openly plugged their adherence to Scientology, which is used in turn as a recruitment tool.

It's not immediately clear what the network will entail, or who from the church's deep bench of famous members may be enlisted for the programming, but the app references live streaming and "full episodes of your favorite shows".

The church previously denied the program's claims to USA TODAY, explaining, "Nothing about A&E's Leah Remini "docuseries" is honest".

Ortega admitted to Radar that he isn't sure Cruise's entertainment team would allow him to take on the scientology TV project because he's already busy "bringing in billions of dollars around the world".
