Welcome to the Little Mosque blog. We'll be posting news stories, observations, behind-the-scenes updates, and exclusive interviews with cast and crew.
In the news:
British writer Ziauddin Sardar talks about the show in the U.K.'s New Statesman today.

And Variety's Awards Central carries a story on Little Mosque and the Search for Common Ground Award:
"Little Mosque on the Prairie," a sitcom about a Muslim community in a small Canadian prairie town, will receive the Search for Common Ground Award, a prestigious humanitarian award whose previous winners include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former U.S. President Carter and Muhammad Ali. Link
And, alas, a slightly surlier take on the story at Defamer.
