TLC has commissioned All-American Muslim, which will follow the lives of five Muslim families living in Dearborn, Michigan, home to the largest mosque in the U.S.
The Shed Media US series, set to premiere in November, will delve into the world of Muslim Americans by following an assorted group that includes newlyweds; close-knit sisters, where one is devout and the other is pierced and tattooed; and a deputy chief who is trying to teach the police force about Muslim culture, in a bid to eradicate discrimination.
The episodes will highlight Muslim-American customs and celebrations, as well as the misconceptions and conflicts they face.
“All-American Muslim is a perfect fit for TLC, inviting viewers into a world they might not otherwise experience,” said Amy Winter, general manager of TLC. “Through these families and their diverse experiences, we will explore how they blend their values and traditions with everyday life in America, providing insight into their culture with care and compassion.”
