Little Mosque on the Prairie
I’m really excited about a new show that’s premiering on CBC tonight called Little Mosque on the Prairie. It’s written by Zarqa Nawaz, a Muslim woman who was raised in Toronto and moved to Saskatchewan (one of Canada’s three prairie provinces) 10 years ago. The show is intended to be a humorous portrayal of a Muslim family’s life in rural Canada, and though its purpose is not political, it will hopefully create some awareness while making us laugh.
The first episode airs tonight at 8:30 in Canada. I have no idea if it will be broadcast in the US, but you can click on the above link to learn more and to watch some clips.
