LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than a dozen of Bill Cosby’s accusers will have their say in a TV special.

The A&E channel said Monday 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.
