What do you think about a Muslim version of the Cosby Show?
Here’s the article from where I got these quotes.
“A few months ago, I read that Katie Couric suggested a Muslim Cosby Show would perhaps help eradicate Islamophobia in America. Couric said:
“I know that sounds crazy,” she said, “but ‘The Cosby Show’ did so much to change attitudes about African-Americans in this country, and I think sometimes people are afraid of things they don’t understand.”
Me being me, I decided to cast the show with my favorite Muslim actors. So when I was given the opportunity to interview Mr. Cosby (and don’t you dare call him Bill!) I was eager to ask him about his opinions on the topic.
“I like her idea,” The Cos told The Track. “I think you could very well teach and people could understand. I do feel that whenever I have gotten to meet people who are coming from different countries that may have been Muslim, I do know that they say they love ‘The Cosby Show.’ And then they ask me, ‘You know why? Because it’s about family.’ ”
What do you think?
Who would you cast as the characters?
Okay, and if you want to see a fake pilot from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, you can see it here. It’s called “The Qu’osby Show”!
