A new one-hour television special will provide a platform for 12 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

Variety reports that Cosby: The Women Speak will include intimate interviews from the victims and a retelling of the viral downfall of the comedian's legendary career.

"The accusations saw little action until last year, when comedian Hannibal Buress brought them up in a stand-up bit, shining a new light on the allegations and causing more women to speak out," the outlet reported.

Cosby, 78, has been accused of drugging, raping and sexually assaulting more than 40 women since the 1960s.

In July, 35 alleged victims told their stories to New York Magazine, who also spoke out against "the culture who wouldn't listen."

Cosby: The Women Speak will air at 10pm ET Thursday 17 September on A&E.
