ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 20 (UPI) -- "American Family," the first Hispanic drama on broadcast television, will return to the Public Broadcasting Service with 13 new episodes.

The series, from filmmaker Gregory Nava and with an ensemble cast including Edward James Olmos, Raquel Welch, Sonia Braga and Esai Morales, is about an extended east Los Angeles family.

Johnson & Johnson, which was the sole corporate underwriter for the first season in 2002, will be joined as a sponsor by the American Legacy Foundation, a nonprofit anti-smoking group.

The new episodes will begin airing in April, preceded in September by a re-airing of episodes from the first season, the L.A. Daily News reported.
