Finally, in early February, Lifetime tackles the story of Gwen Shamblin Lara, the creator of the Weigh Down Workshop and the leader of the controversial Remnant Fellowship Church. Lara – who’s story was also told in the HBO docuseries The Way Down – first found success with a Christian-focused diet program and then went on to become the leader of her own megachurch. Her church came under fire for allegedly shunning overweight members and advocating strict punishment of children. In 2021, while she was at the peak of her power, she and her husband Joe Lara died when the plane he was flying crashed shortly after takeoff.

Jennifer Grey plays the title role in Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation. Vincent Walsh plays Joe. It airs Saturday, Feb. 4 at 8 p.m. ET.
