The Return of An American Family

Apparently the HBO documentary Cinema Verite sparked some interest in the people wanting to see PBS’s ground breaking series An American Family again.  Last seen three years ago at the Silverdocs Film Festival in Washington, DC which featured the entire 12 episode series, on July 7th PBS will air a two-hour version of the series, which has not been seen nationally on television in more than 20 years.  An American Family: Anniversary Edition is intended to “provide a fresh perspective to viewers who may have missed the original series airing,” according to PBS.  Filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond, who worked on the original production, are behind the adaptation.
