ABC Family Pulls Plug on 'Alice in Arabia' After Muslim Org Backlash
by Andrea Seikaly
Just days after the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) expressed concerns over potential stereotyping in the pilot for ABC Family's "Alice in Arabia" and requested a meeting with execs, the network has decided not to pursue the show that had been announced Monday.
An ABC Family spokesperson said Friday, "The current conversation surrounding our pilot was not what we had envisioned and is certainly not conducive to the creative process, so we've decided not to move forward with this project."
The show's premise centered on an American teen kidnapped by her Saudi Arabian family after tragedy befalls her parents.
