ABC pulls the plug on their (racially loaded, incredibly stupid) 'Alice in Arabia'

A follow up to yesterday's edition of White Nonsense.

The cable network decides not to move forward the recent pilot order amid third-party concerns about the depictions of Muslims in the one-hour project.

The recently ordered pilot came under fire from Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization CAIR after Buzzfeed reported Friday it had obtained a script (We Got A Copy Of The Script For “Alice In Arabia” And It’s Exactly What Critics Feared), and described the show as being "about an American teenage girl kidnapped by her extended royal Saudi Arabian family and forced to live with them."

“The current conversation surrounding our pilot was not what we had envisioned and is certainly not conducive to the creative process, so we’ve decided not to move forward with this project," an ABC Family spokesperson said in a statement.

When the pilot order was announced Monday, Alice in Arabia was described as a high-stakes drama about an American girl who was unknowingly kidnapped by members of her extended family, who are Saudi Arabian. The character was to be a virtual prisoner in her grandfather’s royal compound, but would find herself intrigued by her new surroundings and its people, who were to have surprisingly diverse views on the world and her situation. Alice would need to depend on her independent spirit and wit to find her way back home and survive life behind the veil. [source]
