Many American and Canadian sci-fi/fantasy/horror television series have one episode (and usually only one episode) that centers around the Amish, or another group of religious believers who similarly disdain modern technology.
Presumably, this is because the Amish represent an "exotic" culture, and their settlements are easier and cheaper to recreate than taking a television crew to any other "exotic" locale.
By extension, with its late-19th-century isolationist setting, The Village can be considered M. Night Shyamalan's Amish episode, since all of his movies fall into the same supernatural vein as television series with Amish episodes.
