Deadline.com published a January 2020 news report titled: ‘Chad’: Nasim Pedrad Discusses Creating a Middle Eastern Character That Wasn’t Fighting ’24’s Jack Bauer – TCA. This implies, like other reports have, that this show will likely promote the anti-Islamophobia false narrative and Islamist propaganda. The Deadline.com article states in part: “The show, which airs later this year (2020), was handed a ten-part order in May 2019, after having previously been developed and piloted at Fox and 20th Century Fox TV four years ago.”
Fox cancelled production of "Chad An American Boy" in August 2016 after Florida Family Association launched email campaigns that urged the company to drop the show. Florida Family Association reported on February 12, 2019 that TBS picked up the show “Chad: An American Boy” after Fox had dropped it.”
TBS appears to be using the program name “Chad” without the original words "An American Boy." But that does not mean TBS will not use the full title in production. Florida Family Association reported in 2016 that "Chad: An American Boy" has an "All-American Muslim" ring to it. Florida Family Association influenced enough (101 out of 112) companies in 2012 to stop advertising on the show called “All-American Muslim” that The Learning Channel (TLC) cancelled the show. The TLC show used propaganda to try to brand Islam as “All-American”. Chad, with the words “An American Boy,” is likely attempting to accomplish the same propaganda purpose.

It has been over a year since it was reported that TBS ordered a ten part series for Chad. Why is it taking so long for TBS to produce ten episodes of this Muslim sitcom? Could the thousands of emails that people have already sent to encourage TBS and parent company AT&T officials to drop the show be working?
Or is the release of Chad allegedly planned for later this year intended to time leftist pro-illegal immigration propaganda with the 2020 presidential election. The Daily Beast reports TBS Muslim sitcom, Chad, is "anti-Trump" thus adding to concerns regarding its likely anti-Islamophobia propaganda. The Daily Beast reported on September 26, 2019: The Big Wave of Pro-Immigrant TV Sitcoms Taking On Trump. One of the shows the article reports about is TBS’s new Muslim sitcom titled Chad that has not yet aired.
The overwhelming number of Muslim families in America have an adult male as head of the household not a 14 year old boy. That makes it likely that the TBS sitcom Chad will not depict in any remotely realistic manner the way women are treated in observant Muslim homes.
One would think that the Muslim community would be troubled by the show Chad because a female actress plays the male lead role in a Muslim household.
Florida Family Association will carefully review TBS’s new show Chad when it airs and respond if the show pushes any anti Islamophobia propaganda.
Until the show airs Florida Family Association urges you to send emails to express concern to AT&T, WarnerMedia and TBS officials regarding any anti Islamophobia narrative in the show Chad.

I will support efforts to influence advertisers not to support the show Chad if it pushes any part of the leftist and Islamist anti Islamophobia false narrative.
