On Thursday, a handful of the over 50 women who have accused comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault will share their stories in an hour-long television special on the A&E network.

Cosby: The Women Speak will feature the stories of over 12 women, including actress Louisa Moritz, publicist Joan Tarshis and model Beverly Johnson, according to Variety. Their stories are among many that have become public knowledge over the past year as more and more women have openly claimed Cosby drugged and assaulted them at some point in his lengthy career.

The allegations began gaining new traction when comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby a rapist in a stand-up routine and challenged the audience to Google it. Cosby and his lawyers have repeatedly denied the claims, though he admitted to buying drugs with the intent of giving them to women in an recently unsealed deposition.

Cosby: The Women Speak will air at 9p.m. on September 17.
