More than a dozen of Bill Cosby’s accusers will have their say in a TV special.
The A&E channel said that Cosby: The Women Speak will detail the allegations made against the entertainer and damage to Cosby’s career and image.
Actress Louisa Moritz and model Beverly Johnson are among those who were interviewed for the special airing 9 p.m. EDT Thursday, A&E said.
More than two dozen women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them, sometimes after they had been drugged. A defamation suit in Massachusetts and a civil sexual-assault case in California are pending.

Cosby, who has never been charged with a crime, has acknowledged having sex with many women and obtaining Quaaludes to use during sex. He has denied some of the claims.
Longtime rocker Kenny Loggins brought his band to perform for a few dozen people in a living room after a Virginia man’s Kickstarter campaign raised more than $30,000 for the show.
Erick Sanchez started the online campaign to raise money to have Loggins and his band, the Blue Sky Riders, perform at his parents’ home in Oakton. The 29-year-old public relations consultant and self-described “super-fan” got his wish Sunday. The band played all their hits, including Danger Zone.
“Everyone had a really great time, I mean, the energy in my living room was fantastic,” Sanchez said after the show, which he described as “surreal.”
More than 230 people donated to the effort, which raised more than $30,000. About 50 of them were able to watch the concert live from the Sanchez’s living room. Working on the show was like working on a wedding, Sanchez said, considering all of the time and effort that went into making it happen.
Loggins, who still tours and performs at theaters and university campuses, said, “This is the first time we’ve done anything like this — it felt really great.”
