As previously reported, Morgan Spurlock, of "Super Size Me" fame, has a new reality TV series called 30 Days, "which places people in a variety of unfamiliar circumstances for 30 days."
The Orlando Sentinel is now providing us with a sneak-peak into the much-anticipated episode in which a Christian man from West Virginia is placed in the home of Muslim-Americans for 30 days. The article notes:
a devout Christian agrees to spend a month with a devout Muslim family, following their traditions of dress and prayer; he's immediately searched in an airport and later, despite the reassurances of his Imam, panics that he's repudiating his own God.
REMINDER: The series premiere of "30 Days" is tomorrow, June 15, 2005!
[The episode specifically involves] a West Virginia insurance salesman and practicing Christian named Dave [who] goes to live with the Haques of Dearborn, Mich. — "the most densely populated Muslim community in America," Spurlock tells us....
"Do you guys think it's possible that there's any, like, sleeper-cell activity around here?" he asks his host family, over dinner. Meanwhile, Dave can't get to a place of trust with Imam al Husaini at the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center. Spurlock, off camera, keeps upping the ante. Dave has to collect signatures for a petition to stop the racial profiling of Muslim Americans.
