ABC TAKES THE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED "OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS" FAMILY GAME SHOW ON A BLOCK PARTY MOBILE TOUR ACROSS THE COUNTRY

September 2 through September 15, Lucky Families and Neighborhoods Will See How Well They Know Each Other and Have a Chance to Win Great Prizes!

ABC takes the highly-anticipated series to families across the country with the "Opportunity Knocks" Block Party Mobile Tour. Just as ABC's new family game show, "Opportunity Knocks," quizzes families about how well they know each other -- so too will families and neighborhoods around the country have the chance to actually play the game and win amazing prizes.

From September 2 through September 15, the "Opportunity Knocks" Block Party Mobile Tour will visit 14 U.S. cities. In the same way that a semi-truck filled with prizes from the "Opportunity Knocks" TV show team sets up shop on a family's front lawn, a truck will roll into each of these cities with everything needed to play the game.

The block parties will have real stakes and prizes, featuring free food and drinks, fun giveaways, entertainment and much more. The neighborhood will be brought together while competing for prizes, which may include gift cards, ABC gift baskets, Blu-ray DVD players or even an HDTV!

In addition to giving away prizes to lucky individuals at these block parties, selected radio stations will select one local family and give them the opportunity to win additional prizes on-site.

About Opportunity Knocks (premiering TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, f:00-9:00 p.m., ET on ABC):

"Opportunity Knocks" literally sets up shop on a family's front lawn. Host JD Roth poses trivia questions to family members based directly on their lives, each other and articles found in and around their home. If they're able to prove they know their family inside and out -- in front of all their friends and neighbors -- they'll win cash and the prizes of their dreams.
