USA Network’s new original reality series THE MOMENT, 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 episode airing on Friday, May 17 at 11/10c, Liz Imperio, one of the most sought after choreographers in the entertainment industry, mentors Renee Chambers for her dream job of working for the leading tour director of live entertainment in the world today, Jamie King and his new boy band, IM5 (created by Jamie King, Simon Fuller & Perez Hilton). Will the New Jersey native have what it takes to join the best choreographers in the business? If offered the job, will the negative impact of Renee’s dad having been on the road as a famous doo wop musician in the 60’s mean she won’t want to be separated from her kids or will she follow her professional dreams? Will her childhood experience of being separated from her father stand in the way of her pursuing her dream of being a choreographer?
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.
