TV show description:

As this comedic series begins, a small Muslim community in the fictional prairie town of Mercy, Saskatchewan (population 14,000) finally gets its own mosque. The only problem is that it's in a church and some of the local residents become irrationally alarmed.

The mosque's new Imam, Amaar Rashid (Zaib Shaikh), arrives from the big city to smooth things over. Unfortunately, his easy charm and progressive ways do little to convince the locals that Muslims aren't simply a bunch of terrorists.

[News] Production Begins for 'Little Mosque on the Prairie'

Although CBC, a Canadian public TV network, didn't make any announcement, the fifth season of Little Mosque on the Prairie, a sitcom, begins production today in Ontario.

This show follows Amaar Rashid (Zaib Shaikh), a young and "liberal" Muslim imam from Toronto. He decides to go live in a small town of the Canadian Prairies (hello stereotypes!) where a small Muslim community coexists with "white" (if you know what I mean) people. Besides, it appears that the town's mayor (Debra McGrath) and one of her councillors (Sheila McCarthy), are so in favour of Canada's multiculturalism policy, which isn't an immigration policy in case you're too dumb to know.

The show also stars Carlo Rota, Sitara Hewitt, Brandon Firla, Neil Crone, Stephen Lobo and Arlene Duncan.

Finally, it appears that Little Mosque on the Prairie will premiere on CBC this fall.
