NEW YORK (AP) — PBS will air a six-hour documentary series on the history of Latinos in the United States.
The network said Wednesday the documentary, which has been in the works since 2008, will air in the fall of 2013. English and Spanish-language versions are being produced.
The history of Mexican-Americans takes up a large part of the series, but the stories of Latinos who have come to the U.S. from several other countries are also included. Adriana Bosch, a Cuban-American who recently did a documentary for PBS on Latin music, is the supervising producer of the history series.
The Washington-based PBS station WETA and Latino Public Broadcasting are also behind the series.
