Academy Award Winner Melissa Leo Stars in a Film about Tolerance and Acceptance; Film Premieres As Part of USA's Characters Unite Campaign to Combat Discrimination

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, USA will premiere the original film THE SPACE BETWEEN under the Characters Unite Films banner, on September 11, 2011, which stars Oscar winner Melissa Leo ("The Fighter," "Frozen River").

In THE SPACE BETWEEN, Montine McLeod (Leo), a lonely flight attendant, and Omar Hassan (Anthony Keyvan, "Lost," "iCarly"), a 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy, are on a plane that is grounded in Longview, TX the morning of 9/11/01. When Montine discovers that Omar's father works in the World Trade Center she is forced to drive the boy back home to his uncertain future in New York. As they journey across America's vast heartland in the hours and days immediately following the terrorist attacks, Montine and Omar help each other discover the importance of tolerance, redemption, acceptance and hope.

THE SPACE BETWEEN is premiering as part of USA's Characters Unite public service campaign dedicated to combating prejudice, discrimination and intolerance while promoting understanding and acceptance. Inspired by USA's iconic "Characters Welcome" brand and with the support of leading national nonprofit organizations, the ongoing initiative includes on-air programming, such as Characters Unite Films, as well as PSAs, digital content, grassroots outreach and special events in communities and schools across the country.
