As there is likely to be no shortage of people in need and deserving of a second chance, there will probably always be a market for reality TV shows that feature them. It looks like USA is the next in line to give people a chance to achieve their dreams through a reality TV show.
USA's main focus over the last few years seems to have been building on its original programming of scripted dramas. While it’s likely that the cable network will continue to do that, USA is also moving forward with a new reality show starring NFL star Kurt Warner. According to Deadline, USA has given a nine-episode order for a reality series called The Moment, which they’re aiming to get on the air at some point in the third quarter this year.
The Moment will have Warner reaching out to people whose professional goals went unmet due to various circumstances. People whose lives took a turn, preventing them from pursuing a certain career path they might have wanted to take, will have the opportunity for a second chance. As Deadline notes, Warner didn’t make the NFL on his first try and had to take a job at a grocery store to pay the bills before earning a spot on the St. Louis Rams. Now it seems he’ll be helping others with their second chance at success.
The series, which is being executive produced by Justin Hochberg, sounds like it fits the tone of shows like Undercover Boss and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in that it may find an entertaining way to share interesting stories and reward deserving people with a new shot at their dreams.
