    TV Picks: 'Los Jets,' TV podcasts, mini-sitcoms, 'Wizard Wars'
    "Los Jets" (NUVOtv). This six-part documentary about an all-Latino North Carolina high school soccer team is also a tale of the changing face of the South and asks again that elastic and inexhaustible question, What Does It Mean To Be an American? Created and directed by Mark Landsman ("Thunder Soul," "Peace of Mind"), it takes off from a 2007 book by head coach Paul Cuadros, "A Home on the Field: How One Championship Team Inspires Hope for the Revival of Small Town America." (This isn't mentioned in the series itself.) Cuadros, who also teaches journalism at the University of North Carolina, came to Jordan-Matthewes High School, in tiny Siler City, N.C., in 1999, at a time when the state was riven by anti-immigration rallies; seeing kids playing football in the street inspired him to propose that the school field a real team, a hard sell at the time in a town where soccer was identified with otherness. (Bringing home a championship title helped change that.) Thirteen seasons later, Jordan-Matthewes is two-thirds Latino and more students than ever sign up to play soccer. But there are still challenges, from Cuadros' insistence on playing elegant ball in a state where things normally get rough, and from the race-based abuse the team can still encounter on away games. "Take those feelings of anger," Cuadros tells them, "and score more goals."
