ABC cancels drama after Arab protest
, March 24, 2014
America’s ABC Family network has pulled the plug on its planned “Alice of Arabia” drama series due to the criticism from many Arab and Muslim Americans and a number of organizations, a report said.
The news surfaced in the Saudi online media where Saudis expressed their anger and frustration at the drama’s stereotyping of Saudis, said the Arab News report.
The ABC Family has since issued a statement that it will not be going forward with the project, it said.
