Remini herself breaks down at one point during the just-released trailer as a woman recounts her sexual abuse at the hands of her Scientology boss when she was just 14 years old.
Remini then goes on to talk to other victims within the organization.
The message of the trailer? Remini sums it up so perfectly: “Fight for your family. Fight for your daughters, your sons. Wake up.”
Just the trailer is causing a stir on social media.
yes its definitely an eye opener and to know she went through some of those things is horrible

it's a story that NEEDS to be told. People in the "cult" need help. My mouth hung open after reading #Troublemaker good luck

Can't wait to hear everyone's story. I also disconnected and I lost my daughter in the mist of it all.

The eight-part series officially titled Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath will air on A&E and will follow Remini as she speaks with others who have left Scientology like she has and are now ready to share their horrifying stories from when they were inside the organization.
“My whole life I was a very dedicated Scientologist. I didn’t want to find out what I’d done was a lie,” Remini says in the trailer. She spent 30 years as a member of the church. “Something inside of me was saying, ‘Get them out of this thing.'”
Check out the full trailer, which was released exclusively by Entertainment Tonight.
Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premieres on Nov. 29 at 10 p.m. on A&E.
Do you think Remini’s documentary could finally be the straw that breaks the camel’s back when it comes to Scientology?
