Ex-NFL Quarterback Kurt Warner has landed a new gig. Warner will be the host on a new reality series, tentatively titled The Moment, on USA Network. The network’s picked up the nine-episode first season and plans a third quarter kick off for the series which finds Warner giving participants a second chance at the career of their dreams.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Charlie, Justin and Kurt on such an aspirational project,” stated USA Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel. “From the first moments of their pitch, we knew they were onto something that wasn’t just the right creative fit for the brand, but was also a fresh take on personal and inspirational storytelling.”
“Everyone has a ‘what-if’ moment in their life — a decision or path they could have taken – but rarely do they get a second chance to explore what could have been,” said Justin Hochberg and Charlie Ebersol, Co-Founders, The Hochberg Ebersol Company. “We created a format that taps into this emotion, and proved so powerful that it attracted Kurt Warner – the guy who got his own second chance – to his first reality hosting gig. USA is the ideal network for this innovative brand of reality entertainment.”
Each week, someone will be secretly nominated by a loved one and surprised by our host with an unbelievable offer: the opportunity to pick up where they left off and pursue the career they’ve always wanted. From race car driving to orchestra conducting to deep sea diving, they will leave behind the comforts of home and leap into a whirlwind of training under the expert guidance of a world-class mentor who will help them prepare for the audition of a lifetime. But if they succeed, will they accept the job and change their and their family’s life forever – or will they realize that they’ve been living their dream life all along, and go back home to their loved ones?
