USA Network will air its inaugural Character Approved Awards on March 8 at 11 PM, immediately following the season two finale of White Collar. The one-hour special, Character Approved: Honoring 12 Cultural Trailblazers, will feature interviews with twelve real “characters,” people from different creative areas, who are changing the face of American culture. USA established Character Approved Awards 3 years ago as an online initiative coupled with an event but will televise them for the first time this year. ”USA is taking the Character Approved Awards to the next level with our first ever on-air special,” USA’s EVP Chris McCumber said. The special will be directed by documentarian Phil Griffin. Honorees will be announced later this week.
