NEW YORK - APRIL 9, 2013 - USA Network launched today "My Moment," a social platform which engages viewers of its new reality show, THE MOMENT, and taps the power of USA's community of 17MM digital fans to provide advice and resources that will enable them to pursue their dream career.
Premiering April 11, THE MOMENT is hosted by legendary NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and follows the stories of nine individuals who are given a second shot at landing their dream profession. Mirroring the experience of those featured on the show, viewers will have the unique opportunity to embark on their own path of discovery via My Moment at http://mymoment.usanetwork.com/. The program is inspired by Warner's own experience of going from shelving groceries to becoming a Super Bowl MVP.
"My Moment is a great way to involve viewers with the show on an even deeper level and allow them to effect meaningful change in their own lives," said Alexandra Shapiro, executive vice president, marketing & digital for USA Network. "By galvanizing USA's powerful digital fan base, we hope to help viewers achieve lifetime goals."
Individuals will declare their dream jobs, and complete a series of goal-focused steps to achieving their ultimate career "moment." Along the way, they'll have the opportunity to share stories of their personal journeys with the My Moment community, as well as across Twitter and Facebook using #MyMoment. Warner will serve as a career coach, and will recognize the most active participants' hard work and advancement.
As these hopefuls progress, they'll participate within a larger community that may include other dream seekers and mentors in their field, receiving their support as well as Warner's in the form of videos and special digital badges. Participants will also be entered into THE MOMENT Second Chance sweepstakes to win one of five $1,000 prizes to help them further along their road to success. Fans can connect with others and share more stories on USA's The Moment Character Chatter, the network's real-time watercooler, which harnesses and amplifies the social conversation around My Moment and the show by funneling a feed of text, images and videos from all social streams, including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube.
