The Church of Scientology want to put an end to Leah Remini's new docuseries, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Moments after A&E released a clip of Remini, 46, reading the church's statements about her, the church fired off a bombshell letter degrading the show.

Church honcho Karin Pouw wrote the scathing letter that threatened A&E's CEO and the show's executive producer.

"A program about our religion hosted by Ms. Remini is doomed to be a cheap reality TV show by a has-been actress now a decade removed from the peak of her career," the letter began. "Unable to move on with her life, Ms. Remini has made a cottage industry out of whining both about her former religion that expelled her as well as her former friends she alienated with her unending bitterness and seething anger. Rather than letting go, Ms. Remini has doubled down on her obsessive hatred, turning into the obnoxious, spiteful ex-Scientologist she once vowed she would never become."

"She also has redefined herself by the company she keeps," the letter continued. "Ms. Remini tosses out her principles if she smells a buck. Since 2013, she has shamelessly exploited her former affiliation with the Church of Scientology as a primary income source."

Radar previously reported that Remini slammed church leader David Miscavige in another shocking clip.

Pouw claimed that Remini staged her exit from Scientology for publicity, as she was on the verge of being expelled regardless. She also alleged that the actress stalked the church's leader before filing a fraudulent police report with the LAPD — and that despite what her autobiography claimed, she was expelled from the church before the report came out.

She went on to detail all the ways she believed Remini was a hypocrite, before demanding the network pull the show.

"If your 'Untitled Documentary Project' is honest, it should be renamed 'Leah Remini: Desperate for Attention and Money,'" the letter concluded.

The limited series begins Nov. 29.
