FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8 - NFL CHARACTERS UNITE - 7/6c

The film, part of USA's award-winning Characters Unite public service campaign to combat prejudice and discrimination, will feature Arizona Cardinals 2009 Pro Bowl MVP wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain, Pittsburgh Steelers seven-time Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu and New York Giants Pro Bowl defensive end Justin Tuck. All four players have had enormous success on the field after overcoming obstacles of prejudice and discrimination in their personal lives. This second annual documentary profiles NFL stars as they share their deeply personal stories - from Jameel McClain feeling ostracized when his family was homeless and Justin Tuck enduring bullying while trying to succeed in school, to Larry Fitzgerald witnessing discrimination during his mother's battle with cancer and Troy Polamalu learning to embrace his heritage and unique look. The Players also go back to their respective communities to meet a child or teenager currently facing the same challenges and adversity. Through meaningful conversation and specially tailored confidence-building activities, the NFL stars help the young people realize how they too can overcome the bullying, prejudice and intolerance they have experienced and move on to achieve their own greatness.

Stars: Jameel McClain, Justin Tuck, Larry Fitzgerald, Troy Polamalu
