Trying to shed light on a community that residents say is often misportrayed, a cable TV station is filming a reality show on the lives of Muslim Americans in Dearborn. It will premiere in November.
Crews with TLC have been filming in recent weeks in metro Detroit as they follow the lives of about five Muslim-American families and their friends. Called “All-American Muslim,” the series will be on the same channel that has done reality shows on Sarah Palin and Kate Gosselin.
The new show is about “inviting viewers into a world they might not otherwise experience,” Amy Winter, general manager of TLC, said Thursday. “Through these families and their diverse experiences, we will explore how they blend their values and traditions with everyday life in America.”
