'All American Muslim' Reality Show Set for November

Ethnocentric reality shows are all the rage, if recent news regarding Lifetime's "Russian Dolls," Bravo's "Shahs of Sunset" (co-produced by Ryan Seacrest) and -- who could ever forget -- the original stereotype-affirming, explosive series "Jersey Shore" are any indication. But what MTV has done as the Jane Goodall of sordid Italo-American culture, a cable network hopes to do with a subject a tad more sensitive.

According to the Daily Mail, TLC jumps on the bandwagon with their own ethnoreligious-themed television show, entitled "All American Muslim." Premiering in November, the show follows the trials and tribulations of five Muslim families in Dearborn, Michigan -- home to the largest mosque in the U.S. and a similarly prodigious Muslim community.

"Through these families and their diverse experiences, we will explore how they blend their values and traditions with everyday life in America," TLC said in a press release.

Among others, the show will feature characters that range from a tattooed-and-pierced sister to a married couple in early parenthood.
