Watch THE NEW AMERICANS on Global Voices on PBS WORLD

Posted on July 3, 2009
It's summertime, and for TV viewers everywhere that means the dreaded season of reruns and reality TV. But wait, don't give up on your television just yet because ITVS is bringing you something actually worth watching. The acclaimed miniseries THE NEW AMERICANS airs July 5-August 16 in one-hour weekly installments at 10:00 PM on Global Voices on PBS WORLD (check local listings). This seven-part series looks at the search for the "American dream" through the eyes of recent immigrants and refugees during their first tumultuous years in America. From Nigeria, India, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the Israeli-occupied West Bank, each family has come with different hopes: to achieve athletic glory or high-tech riches, to escape poverty and persecution or to simply provide for their families.
