Reopen Sesame !

Vila Sesamo, the first international version of Sesame Street, is
returning to Brazilian airwaves after almost 30 years.

The show, which aired from 1972 through 1974, is being revived in a partnership among
Sesame Workshop, educational network Canal Futura and the Roberto Marinho
Foundation.

The partnership is currently seeking sponsors for the planned 52 episodes,
which will air as a daily strip beginning in 2004.
