Opportunity Knocks is a new reality game show that tests how well contestants know their family. Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg, Karey Burke, JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson are the executive producers of the show. On the show, host JD Roth knocks on a family’s front door and presents them with the opportunity to participate in a family game night where they can win cash and prizes.
The premiere episode of Opportunity Knocks features the Gutierrez family from Torrance, California. The Gutierrez family is made up of parents Walter and Patty Gutierrez and their two children, thirteen year old Lucas and twelve year old Alexis. Walter Gutierrez is an aerospace engineer, who collects toy cars. Walter dreams of owning a 1969 Camaro. Patty Gutierrez is a Spanish teacher. Lucas plays electric guitar and is a big fan of classic rock stars, while Alexis is a cheerleader and a huge fan of the Jonas Brothers.
The Gutierrez family are challenged to answer trivia questions about their lives, each other, and articles in and around their home. Some example questions include Lucas naming the cheerleading move that Alexis practices, Patty remembering the grade her son was in from a photo, and Walter guessing which of his gifts to his wife was her least favorite. If they answer the questions correctly, then they could win money and prizes. Their friends and neighbors serve as a studio audience.
Opportunity Knocks premieres on Tuesday, September 23 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET on ABC.
