NEW YORK -- A new muppet on Sesame Street will once again take on tough issues.

The children's TV series plans to introduce Alex, a muppet whose father is in jail. It's part of Sesame Street's effort to help kids understand and cope with parental incarceration.

Sesame Street says one in 28 American children reportedly have a parent in prison.
