In the news: Little Mosque’s Minnesota connections

From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

  • ‘Little Mosque on Prairie’ puts Muslims in a sitcom
    “The show’s Minnesota connections run deeper than its playful reference to the “Little House on the Prairie” in Walnut Grove, Minn., made famous by Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books and the TV show starring Michael Landon. “Little Mosque” executive producer Mary Darling grew up in Minnetonka and came up with the show’s name years after she made frequent trips through Walnut Grove to visit her grandparents in southwestern Minnesota.”

    “Can you see it here? Not yet, but producers are in negotiations with U.S. networks and say chances are “extremely high” it will be shown here as soon as this fall.”
