  • Mosque shortlisted for Banff awards
    “For the second year in a row, CBC’s The Rick Mercer Report is named in the best comedy category, up against first-season nominee Little Mosque on the Prairie, from Regina- and Toronto-based WestWind Pictures, which also airs on the pubcaster. They will square off against The Knights of Prosperity – which has struggled on U.S. caster ABC – and U.K. shows including Channel 4’s Green Wing, the BBC’s Pulling, and The Vicar of Dibley: The Handsome Stranger from Tiger Aspect Productions.”
