A promotional video says “the only thing more interesting than what you’ve heard, is what you haven’t.”

On Twitter, there is also a post that says “it’s time for us to tell our story."

It appears there will be a series called 'Inside Scientology.' Another series will focus on the religion’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard. And a series called 'Destination Scientology' will show churches around the world.

We don’t know yet, how much the center in Clearwater will be featured.

Scientology owns more than $260 million in property in downtown Clearwater and is planning more growth.

The controversial group, led by David Miscavige, has been accused of abuse and exploration.

The church may use the network to combat all the negative publicity that came from the documentary 'Going Clear' and books and tv appearances by former member Leah Remini.

There is no word on if celebrity followers Tom Cruise and John Travolta will be featured on the network.

We reached out to the Church of Scientology for more details, but they answered only that “more information will be available once we begin airing. Thanks for asking.”
