Little Mosque to come to Europe

CBC's hit sitcom "Little Mosque on the Prairie" will begin airing in the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland later this year, the show's producer said Tuesday.

Netherlands Public Broadcasting has acquired seasons 1 and 2 of 'Little Mosque,' which will be dubbed or subtitled in Dutch, said Toronto-based WestWind Pictures.

The first two seasons are also set to air in Belgium on the premium pay network BeTV with French subtitles.

Season 1 of the show will be broadcast in Switzerland with German subtitles by broadcaster Schweizer Fernsehen.

"The demand for 'Little Mosque on the Prairie' from the European broadcasting community has been incredible," said executive producer Mary Darling.

"We continue to receive numerous serious inquiries from top broadcasters throughout Europe who are interested in acquiring the show in various formats."

"Little Mosque" airs in over 80 markets globally, including French-speaking Africa, the Middle East and several European countries.
