Now that Scientology is squarely in the public eye thanks to TomKat's heart-breaking split, leaders in the church apparently don't have any intention of slinking back out of view -- rather, they've decided to turn part of their Hollywood complex into a religious TV station.

LA Observed tipped us off to this Reuters article, which explains how the studio that the church bought from KCET last year is now going to become home base for a radio, internet and television broadcast preaching the dogma of Scientology.

Karin Pouw, a spokeswoman for Church of Scientology International, told Reuters that "The church plans to establish a central media hub for our growing world network of churches and to move into the production of religious television and radio broadcasting."

There's no word on when the station might launch.
