Little Mosque on the Prairie

I heard this NPR interview with Zarqa Nawaz, the Muslim creator of "Little Mosque on the Prairie" for Candian Broadcast Corp. It's a sitcom about a small prairie community and its even smaller (yet growing) Muslim community. The Muslims have started meeting in the local Anglican church. From the website:
At its heart, Little Mosque is a humorous look at relationships, family, love, the generation gap and balancing Muslim beliefs and traditions in a prairie setting.

Sounds like a winner for CBC! Below are 4 youtube clips that captured the pilot episode. Enjoy!
