USA NETWORK AND VIGGLE TEAM TO CREATE SOCIAL TV EXPERIENCE FOR AMERICAN CLASSIC "TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD"

Fans Can Engage with Compelling and Thought Provoking Second Screen Experience Honoring Movie's 50th Anniversary; USA and Viggle To Match Points Fans Generate to Network's Characters Unite Nonprofit Partners

USA and Viggle are using Social TV to provide entertaining and informative content during the network's exclusive airing of "To Kill a Mockingbird" this Saturday, April 7 at 8/7c brought to viewers by USA, the American Film Institute (AFI) and Universal Pictures. The partners are tapping into 50 years of history to create an engage-through experience during the telecast. Fans will learn about iconic moments, celebrity recounts, exclusive photos and videos as they watch Universal's digitally remastered and fully restored classic being broadcast nationally for the first time.

This second screen experience is a social companion element aimed at driving discussion and providing more context around this iconic film. Viewers can use Viggle to check into the movie and will earn points by participating in Viggle LIVE's second screen experience to learn more about the "To Kill a Mockingbird" and USA's Characters Unite campaign which highlights the importance of tolerance and respect. USA and Viggle will match the amount of points being generated by fans and make a donation of up to $20,000 to the Characters Unite nonprofit partners championing civil and human rights. Fans can also convert their Viggle points into charitable donations for charities of their choice in the Viggle app rewards section.

The film, based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, tells the story of lawyer Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck) and his struggle for justice in a small community in Alabama. With its timeless depiction of issues that are still prevalent today, the film's themes lend themselves to the Social TV environment, where viewers can share their thoughts and access new, relevant content. ?Characters Unite, USA's award-winning public service program, is a community designed to promote greater understanding and acceptance and was created to address the social injustices and cultural divides still prevalent in our society.

Inspired by USA's iconic "Characters Welcome" brand and with the support of leading national nonprofit organizations, the ongoing campaign is dedicated to supporting activities and messaging that combat prejudice and intolerance while promoting understanding and acceptance -- on-air, online, and in communities across the country.
