‘Brothers’ stays in Nick family

11 episodes to begin filming in October

Nickelodeon has ordered a third season of live-action laffer “The Brothers Garcia.”

The show, about three brothers and a sister growing up in San Antonio, Texas, begins production on 11 episodes in October.

The Nick hit, which bowed in July 2000 as the first English-lingo sitcom with an all-Latino cast and team of writers, directors and producers, is also set to take shape as a 90-minute telefilm to air on the cabler in 2002.

The renewal is not surprising — “Garcia” steadily ranks as the No. 1 kiddie show (ages 6-11) in its timeslot.

The show has also garnered awards and award nominations, including kudos from the American Latino Media Arts Awards, the National Hispanic Media Coalition’s Impact Award, the National Assn. of Minorities in Cable’s Vision Award and an Imagen nod.

“Kids across the country have spoken through the past season’s ratings,” said Nick exec VP and general manager Cyma Zarghami.”The support from Nickelodeon viewers and the community is truly inspiring,” added Jeff Valdez, executive producer and sometime director of the series.Valdez produces the show under his Si TV banner, an L.A. and San Antonio-based company he founded with partner Bruce Barshop in 1997.
