Si TV's Groundbreaking 'PASTPORT' Connects Latino Celebrities With Their Family's Past
This year's maiden voyage of PASTPORT casts off on Sunday, March 20 at 9PM ET/PT with PASTPORT: Colombia A Daughter's Journey Home featuring actress PAULA GARCES (Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, The Shield, The Sopranos), who travels to COLOMBIA to connect with the father she never really knew. Traveling closely by her side is Paula's 18-year-old daughter, who can't wait to meet her family whom she's only known through bedtime stories.
"I really felt as if this trip was the start of a new chapter in my life," said Garces, "I wanted my daughter to experience the intense connection I have with my Colombian heritage and share this once-in-a-lifetime experience. It reawakened a part of me I was afraid I had lost."
"PASTPORT captures a journey to your past that anyone can relate to, but especially the bi-cultural Latino community," said Maria Perez-Brown, Si TV's SVP of Programming, "The people we follow are passionate about their own American experience, but crave a stronger bond to their heritage. Our audience connects with this on a very personal level, because they are constantly balancing the best of their two cultures."
PASTPORT specials continue throughout the year with:
Sunday, June 5 – CARLOS ALAZRAQUI (Comedy Central's Reno 911!) – ARGENTINA
Monday, July 4 – WILMER VALDERRAMA (That 70's Show, Yo Momma, The Dry Land) – VENEZUELA
Sunday, September 18 – ALANNA UBACH (HBO's Hung, Meet The Fockers, Legally Blonde), – PUERTO RICO
Sunday, November 13 – TATYANA ALI (Fresh Prince of Bel Air) – PANAMA
