"All-American Muslim" (TLC TV show) is a reality series that answers the question: What's it like to be Muslim in America? The series delves deep inside the rarely seen world of Muslim Americans to uncover unique insight into this little known—and often misunderstood—community.

"All-American Muslim" brings audiences inside Dearborn, Michigan, a mid-sized industrial city that is also home to the largest mosque in the United States. Following the daily lives of five Muslim American families, each episode offers an intimate look at their customs and celebrations, as well as the misconceptions, conflicts and differences they face outside—and within—their own community.

The families on the series are sharing their biggest celebrations and their unexpected challenges, giving our viewers unprecedented access into the American Muslim community. The families share the same religion, but lead very distinct lives that often times challenge the Muslim stereotype. Among the handful of subjects profiled are Shadia and Suehaila, who are tight-knit sisters, but while Suehaila wears the traditional head scarf, is active in the Muslim community and prays five time a day, Shadia is outspoken, has piercings and tattoos and recently married an Irish Catholic who is converting to Islam. Also recently married, Nadar and Nawal are having their first baby and trying to find the balance between their traditional Muslim roots and American culture. Mike, Deputy Chief for the Wayne County Sheriff's Dept., works tirelessly to educate the department about the Muslim religion in an effort to reduce discrimination and ignorance while his wife, who is an executive who works as a consultant to a major auto manufacturer, struggles to find the balance between work and raising a modern Muslim family.

Throughout the series, viewers will see these families through some of life's biggest events and challenges—from getting married and the birth of a first baby, to juggling busy careers while raising a family, to managing sibling dynamics and finding "Mr. or Ms. Right."

"All-American Muslim" shows how these individuals negotiate universal family issues while remaining loyal to the traditions and beliefs of their religious faith—and how they simultaneously defy the assumptions and stereotypes prevalent in today's society.
