USA Network – 2012 USA Characters Unite
Characters Unite is USA Network’s public service campaign to address the social injustices and cultural divides still prevalent in our society. To meet the ’12 objectives, USA Network used engaging messages and leveraged all of its platforms. The campaign exceeded expectations by driving much greater awareness, highlighting timely civil and human rights issues and stressing the importance of respect and acceptance. The initiative generated more than 440mln media impressions with coverage in a wide range of outlets including “The Today Show,” “Morning Joe,” “Access Hollywood,” E!, AP, Sports Illustrated, New York Times, Variety and many more. The net was able to enlist President Obama to film a new introduction for “To Kill A Mockingbird” and Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg to tape one for “The Color Purple.” This “star power” helped generate greater buzz and awareness for the airings of both films which delivered stellar ratings.
