Ryan Seacrest Hosts ‘Knock Knock Live’ on Fox.

Ryan Seacrest will produce and host a reality TV series, “Knock Knock Live” launching July 21 on Fox. With his longtime gig as host of American Idol set to end after the singing competition’s upcoming 15th and final season, Seacrest has lined up another Fox reality show.

Knock Knock Live features Seacrest in a Los Angeles-based studio, while the Knock Knock Live team travels across the country, to any city at any time, surprising unsuspecting people at their front doors with a chance to win big cash prizes, meet their favorite celebrities and turn their wildest dreams into reality.Premiering July 21 at 9 p.m., the show will feature Seacrest from its Los Angeles studios while a “Knock Knock” team surprises people with “life altering” prizes ranging from cash, visits from with their favourite celebrities, or the opportunity to fulfil their wildest fantasy.

With American Idol on a break before it finishes up its lengthy run with one final season, host Ryan Seacrest is apparently looking to keep busy in front of the camera by hosting yet another series on Fox. Here’s what Fox has to say about the series: “What if someone knocked on your door and offered you thousands of dollars for naming nine kids who live on your block? Seacrest is also executive producing the series along with Simon Fuller, Michael Herwick, Allen Shapiro, Mike Mahan, Mark Bracco, Stijn Bakkers, and Nicolle Yaron. Seacrest —who will also serve as an exectuive producer on the series—will host the show from a studio in Los Angeles, while his team travels the country. Seacrest’s production company will produce the show alongside Dick Clark Productions and “American Idol” creator Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment.

Seacrest also hosts and produces “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” on 102.7 FM, ABC’s “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve” and serves as the executive producer of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” franchise, Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset,” CMT’s “I Love Kellie Pickler,” ABC Family’s “Becoming Us,” and the upcoming NBC drama “Shades of Blue,” which stars “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez. That much more impressive — and, in success, lucrative — for Seacrest: He is also a stakeholder in the format worldwide, alongside Fuller, DCP and Fox. Similarly key, the deal features limited exclusivity for Seacrest, which will enable the multihyphenate to continue working across the media landscape. In an interview last year, Seacrest confirmed that he also had been having conversations with NBC Sports about collaborating on the 2016 Olympics coverage in Rio, as he did the London games in 2012. In early April, Seacrest announced a sizable deal between Endemol and the unscripted division of his 9-year-old production company, Ryan Seacrest Productions, which officially takes effect in 2016. (Knock Knock Live is not being produced by RSP.) The pact should allow RSP, which currently produces E!’s Kardashian franchise, Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset and ABC Family’s upcoming transgender series Becoming Us, to exploit Endemol’s resources along with its access to international formats.

DCP, for its part, has become key to the network’s summer unscripted push, with involvement in Knock Knock as well as late June hopeful Boom!, based on an Israeli game show format, and another season of SYTYCD.
