The USA Network announced plans for its first entry in the reality genre, TheWrap.com reports. The show, which will be hosted by former NFL Super Bowl champion Kurt Warner, is "The Moment," the story reports.

USA has picked up nine episodes of the series, which is about people getting a second chance to return to careers they’ve previously abandoned.

The show’s executive producers, Charlie Ebersol and Justin Hochberg, said in a statement: "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. 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."

Warner had been bagging groceries after failing to make it as a professional football player, but then got a second chance to play for the St. Louis Rams. A year and a half later, Warner was playing in the Super Bowl.

  1. USA already came out with a reality show last year. The show was called “Tough Enough” and featured wrestlers from across the country, both male and female, competing for a contract with the WWE. The show was great and did well in the ratings, especially considering the lack of promotion by the network.
