LOS ANGELES — NBC has decided red is its color: The network is bringing its Red Nose Day fundraiser back for a second year.

NBC said Tuesday the two-hour program featuring stars, comedy and music will air next spring.

Donations will go to groups helping children living in poverty in the United States and elsewhere in the world. The recipients will be announced later.

Last year's Red Nose Day campaign raised more than $23 million, the network said, with the money distributed to a dozen charities.

It was the first U.S. version of Britain's three-decade old "Red Nose Day" event that's raised more than $1 billion.

NBC said its Red Nose Day sequel will air May 26.
