Benjamin Bratt (son of a Peruvian mother) will narrate a six-hour documentary series called "Latino Americans," slated for fall 2013 on PBS.

The producers aim to document "the evolution of a new "Latino American" identity from the 1500s to the present day, with interviews with close to 100 Latinos from the worlds of politics, business and pop culture." That means the familiar Rita Moreno to Gloria Estefan span, as far as entertainment history is concerned.

Cuban-born Adriana Bosch (who previously produced the excellent "Latin Music U.S.A." for "American Experience") leads the team of filmmakers. Word is the production crew is largely Hispanic as well.
