SYNOPSIS OF NEW FALL AND MIDSEASON SERIES:
The world is full of givers. Individuals who forego their own dreams in order to care for those they love. Think of the single mother who works three jobs to provide for her children. The teenage son who drops out of school to nurse a sick parent. The brilliant student desperate to change society on a macro level, but struggling to afford a college degree.
Through generosity and kindness, such exemplary humans inspire hope and ignite passion in the rest of us.
Yet how are these angels ever fully rewarded?
Enter Opportunity Knocks, a reality program built around the premise of giving back to the givers. We hope to express our gratitude by rewarding generous individuals with opportunities to pursue their own dreams. Think Extreme Makeover meets Intervention. "Opportunity Knocks" is hosted by Lanika Wise and OKTV CEO, Xavier "X" Mitchell. Xavier "X" Mitchell is the writer. Cheryl Cobb is executive producer; and Xavier Mitchell is the director on the pilot and the executive producer.

At the same time we see how the members of this loving family live and interact with each other, in ways that are complicated and sometimes challenging but also lead to personal growth and strengthened relationships.

America observes the struggles and triumphs of four to eight diverse female DJs in today's chaotic world, as they strive for international recognition in a male-dominated Industry. Universally, the portrayal of the Disc Jockey in America is typically male - but why is that? Because what we all know is "the party don't start until the girls get there". The divas featured are here to mix it up; imagine a cross between "Sisterhood Of Hip Hop", with the heart and humanity of "Born This Way".
Day to day these heroines go the extra mile, fulfilling their astronomical music dreams by breaking down barriers. They fight tooth and nail against preconceived stereotypes, biases, and colossal obstacles – unbeknownst to the world they have the same undeniable passion their male counterparts have, yet the same passion has eluded these ladies… the right to slay the tables. Show is created by and executive produced by Xavier Mitchell. Stars up and coming sensation Belle Aire.
