USA NETWORK LAUNCHES NEW ORIGINAL REALITY SERIES "THE MOMENT," FOLLOWING THE DRAMATIC STORIES OF NINE PEOPLE WHO ARE GIVEN AN EXTRAORDINARY SECOND CHANCE TO LAND THEIR DREAM JOB

SERIES HOSTED BY NFL SUPER BOWL MVP KURT WARNER AND PREMIERES ON THURSDAY, APRIL 11 AT 10/9C

NEW YORK - April 4, 2013 - USA Network's new original reality series THE MOMENT, premiering on Thursday, April 11 at 10/9c, follows the dramatic journeys of nine lucky individuals who are given a second shot at pursuing their dream career.

Hosted by former NFL quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner, each one-hour episode profiles an ordinary person who has been secretly nominated by a loved one and surprised with the extraordinary chance to attain the job he or she always wanted. As they leave the comforts of home behind, these hopefuls will leap into a whirlwind of rigorous training under the expert guidance of a top-notch mentor who will help them prepare for a high stakes interview that could possibly change their lives and their family's lives forever. The series takes viewers behind-the-scenes and explores a wide range of coveted professions, such as NASCAR driver, White House chef, Notre Dame football coach, toy designer, choreographer, Broadway costume designer, and orchestra conductor.

In the premiere episode, native Alabama mom and Operations Manager Tracie Marcum is nominated by her husband to pursue her lifelong passion for photography. With the help of world-renowned sports photographer Lou Jones, Tracie will undergo intense training for two weeks in preparation for a job interview with Sports Illustrated. Will Tracie have what it takes to enter the big leagues of sports photography? And if she gets the job offer, is Tracie prepared to uproot her entire family to New York City and live the busy life of a working mother who will need to travel far and wide to cover sports events? Viewers will follow Tracie on an emotion-filled adventure that pushes her personal limits and tests every bit of her ambition and stamina.

As the host of the series, Warner is a role model for perseverance. Five years after stocking shelves at a grocery store, Warner was on the biggest stage in sports, as the quarterback leading the St. Louis Rams to their first of two Super Bowl championships. Warner triumphed again years later in his career when he led the Arizona Cardinals to a Super Bowl victory. Off the field as a devoted husband and father to seven children, Warner continues to encourage the pursuit of one's dreams and the undying belief in faith.

THE MOMENT runs through May 30, and is executive produced by Charlie Ebersol and Justin Hochberg of THE Company.
