Sky will air HBO's Scientology documentary 'Going Clear: Scientology and The Prison of belief' next month.

The critically-acclaimed documentary was put on hold after the Church of Scientology threatened to sue.

It will air on Sky Atlantic at 9pm on September 21st.

The film is made by Academy Award-winner Alex Gibney and has received widespread critical acclaim. It's based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright.

It profiles eight former members of the Church of Scientology. It promises to shine a light on how the religion attracts true believers.

It will also highlight the Church's origins and chart its rise in popularity among the Hollywood elite.

We're promised shocking claims by former insiders, including accusations of abuse and betrayal by Church officials. The Church denies all accusations.

"'Going Clear' is a brilliantly compelling film that unflinchingly probes the secretive world of Scientology through powerful testimony and a beautifully crafted narrative," said Celia Taylor, Sky's head of non-scripted commissioning. "I am extremely proud of it."

Zai Bennett, director of Sky Atlantic, added: "I'm hugely proud that Sky Atlantic has co-produced 'Going Clear', especially in light of its recent success gaining seven Emmy nominations. I'm sure that Sky audiences will be captivated by Alex Gibney's remarkable film."
