A&E preps Bill Cosby special

A&E has ordered Cosby: The Women Speak, a one-hour special featuring interviews with some of the women levelling accusations at the US comedy star.

The US cable net will run the one-hour special this Thursday at 9pm.

Numerous women are alleging they were sexually assaulted by Cosby, and the A&E show will have accounts from some of his accusers, including actress Louisa Moritz, publicist Joan Tarshis and model Beverly Johnson.

The show will also examine how Cosby and his advisors have responded since the allegations surfaced.

ABC News-backed Lincoln Square Productions is making the show for A&E. It will be the first of four specials from Lincoln Square for A&E.
