ZARQA

About the Show

ZARQA (6x10, Comedy, FUNdamenalist Films, 2022, Canada) follows its titular character, a complex, middle-aged Muslim woman (played by Zarqa Nawaz, Little Mosque on the Prairie) who learns on social media that her ex-husband is marrying a white yoga instructor half his age named Bethany. Zarqa impulsively comments that she will attend the wedding with her own cliché: a white brain surgeon named Brian. Now she just has to find him. The comical chaos continues with the arrival of Zarqa’s former love interest, Yusuf (Rizwan Manji, Schitt’s Creek).
