FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - (Walnut Creek, CA, June 30, 2023) - All six seasons (91 episodes) of the award-winning comedy, Little Mosque on the Prairie, are now available to stream in Canada on Disney+. The streaming giant has picked up the series for a two-year, non-exclusive license.

Produced by WestWind Pictures, Little Mosque on the Prairie takes an affectionate, comedic look at a small Muslim community trying to fit into rural Canada. The comedic series broke down multiple stereotypes when it set a mosque in the parish hall of the local church, leaving the respective congregations to figure things out (comedically). The 91-episode series won dozens of awards both as a creative endeavour and as a contribution to a constructive dialogue. The producers' most cherished award was The Search for Common Ground Award, presented after the show's debut in 2007, an award shared by such luminaries as Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Romeo Dallaire. Little Mosque on the Prairie continued to garner awards during its six seasons of production, which ended in 2012.
