Brad Pitt hasn't lent his famously husky voice to any films since the 2003 animated flop Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas. But starting Nov. 1, Brad Pitt is slated to narrate six episodes of RX for Survival: A Global Health Challenge for PBS. The one hour documentary episodes follow health care researchers as they struggle to eradicate disease in the world's poorest countries.

In an interview with the Associated Press on Monday, Pitt discussed his trips to Africa of late and his work with The One campaign. "I've been involved with the issue of poverty - I've been studying it for about a year and half now," Pitt told the AP. "I think one of the major causes of that is health, global health. We're finding out that there's no safe haven from infectious diseases. It's a plane flight away." Pitt cited the recent outbreak of the bird flu as one example of infectious disease "jumping the pond."

Amid a tabloid frenzy over his relationship with Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie, Pitt says he is trying to redirect the attention to his latest cause. "The human interest is enough - the fact that millions are dying from preventable, curable diseases," Pitt said. "But if the human interest isn't enough, then wisdom will tell you that self-preservation is."

Stay tuned for updates.
