PPI Releasing to Distribute Little Mosque on the Prairie

March 27, 2012 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 0 Comments

Distributor PPI Releasing, LLC has acquired the U.S. broadcast rights to Canadian sitcom Little Mosque on the Prairie, which takes a comical look at a small Muslim community trying to fit into a rural town. Little Mosque on the Prairie producer WestWind Pictures and PPI Releasing are partnering to sell the series to American broadcasters, including cable or syndication. The sitcom is distributed by WestWind Releasing and has aired in over 80 countries.

“We think the timing is right for something different on American television,” said PPI principal, Josh Raphaelson. “Above all, what sells this show is that it is very, very funny.”

“Laughter is a great way to build bridges,” added Mary Darling, Executive Producer of Little Mosque. “And, let’s face it, our relationship with Muslims and Islamic culture is still a hot-button issue. Little Mosque is as relevant today as it ever was, especially in the United States.”

Little Mosque, which premiered on the CBC in January 2007, has delivered the largest audience for the network over the last decade. Ninety-one episodes of the CBC sitcom are available for distribution.
