Donald Trump's Muslim Ban Throws TV Shows into Chaos

Exclusive Details

President Trump's immigration order has Hollywood execs and actors freaking out ... because Muslim and Middle Eastern roles are pivotal for a bunch of TV shows.

Casting sources tell us ... the 2 networks hit the hardest by Trump's order are NBC and Netflix. "For God and Country" -- produced by the "Homeland" folks -- have a pilot order from NBC which calls for a number of Middle Eastern actors.

We're told Netflix has a show in the works which also features numerous Middle Eastern characters.

Marc Cherry has an untitled pilot for ABC as well that’s set to star a late 20's Middle Eastern man ... alongside Reba McEntire.

Here's the prob -- casting agents rely heavily on people from the 7 countries on Trump's ban list. One big casting agent says it's always been difficult to cast these roles, but now it's "super f***** up."
