Alice In Arabia is everything you've feared [Buzzfeed]

The cable channel protested that the project shouldn’t be judged on a brief synopsis, but a script for the show’s pilot — obtained by BuzzFeed from an industry source — is likely to confirm early fears. At one point, the heroine generically describes Muslim social views — the opposition to drinking, for instance, as “extreme.” The script also describes veiled Muslim women as “completely formless, anonymous.” One sympathetic female character, in describing her lavish Riyadh home, lauds it as “worth having to wear a silly veil while outside.”
