TLC Reality Show to Follow the Lives of Muslim Families



Call it "Muslim Modern Family."

Cable channel TLC is hoping to do for Muslims what it did for polygamists and Sarah Palin — put a new spin on controversial subjects that people often make judgments about without knowing the whole story.

The reality show "All-American Muslim" will follow the lives of five Muslim American families, some of whom are related, who reside in Dearborn, Mich., a suburb of Detroit that has a large Muslim population. The show will debut in late November.

The people participating in "All-American Muslim" seem to range from very religious to more casual, and all struggle to find a balance between their American home and their Muslim background. One cast member is a football coach and another is in law enforcement. There are even splits in the level of devotion in some families. One family features two sisters — one of whom wears a traditional head scarf and another who has tattoos and piercings and married an Irish Catholic. (More)
