U.S. Muslims get their turn at reality TV
by Piet Levy
From rich housewives to hoarders to the Kardashian clan, practically every kind of family has received the reality TV treatment — except for American Muslims.
That changes Nov. 13 with the premiere of TLC's "All-American Muslim." Advertised with the tagline "One Nation, Under Suspicion," the eight-part series aims to be an antidote to Islamophobia, documenting five Muslim families in Dearborn, Mich., home to one of the nation's largest Muslim communities.
"This is something that hasn't been done before in the way we're doing it," said show producer Alon Orstein, TLC's vice president of production and development for the East Coast.
