A TV show about members of a Muslim community in Michigan is focusing an episode Sunday on how its participants deal with the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The TLC show "All-American Muslim" attracted attention earlier this month when a Christian fundamentalist group in Florida called it "propaganda" that hid an anti-American agenda and urged an advertiser boycott.

Filming for the series took place during the 10th anniversary of
9-11.

TLC General Manager Amy Winter says both the show's participants and the network wanted to address it, with some of the people interviewed saying it had made life difficult even though they are loyal Americans.

The first season of the series ends January 8th.
