Inaugurated in March 2002 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, private sector corporation, Layalina Productions Inc. is dedicated to bridging the growing divide between the Muslim world and the United States by fostering cultural, educational, and professional dialogues through effective television programming. Layalina develops and produces informative and entertaining Arabic-language programming for licensing to satellite and cable television networks in the U.S. and throughout the Arab Middle East, North Africa, and Indian subcontinent
Layalina's programming consists of debate, drama, entertainment and educational shows that forthrightly address the most controversial issues affecting U.S.-Arab and Pakistani relations. Our shows air in prime time to an audience of tens of millions on leading Arab-owned satellite TV channels, Pakistani cable networks, and American cable networks.
Layalina's efforts represent the first successful private sector initiative to establish new lines of communication and dialogue with citizens and key opinion leaders throughout the Muslim world. Layalina is funded solely through tax-deductible donations from individuals and corporations, and through grants by foundations based in the U.S. and the Muslim world.
