[via press release from NBC]

NBC �GRANTS� WISHES IN NEW REALITY PILOT/SPECIAL �THREE WISHES,� HOSTED BY GRAMMY WINNER AMY GRANT

Multiple Grammy-winning Recording Artist to Make Unbelievable Dreams Come True in Heartwarming New Series.

BURBANK, Calif. -� March 17, 2005 -� NBC will be making "Three Wishes" come true in a new special/backdoor pilot starring five-time Grammy-winning artist Amy Grant in an unscripted format in which Grant will lead a team of experts to a small town to help make the hopes and unbelievable dreams come true for deserving people.

"Everyone secretly wants the chance to fulfill a lifelong wish that seems beyond their grasp -- and this show will help transform those dreams into a life-changing reality," said Jeff Gaspin, President, NBC Universal Cable Entertainment & Cross-Platform Strategy, who made the announcement.

The full spectrum of wishes ranges from paying tribute to an unsung hero to helping a hopeless family in the grip of a member's life-threatening medical crisis. Also included: living out a mind-blowing sports fantasy, helping to save a dedicated teacher's job, keeping a factory that provides jobs open as it teeters on the brink of closing down � and even saving a desperate local economy on the verge of slipping into debt.

Said Grant: "When I heard about this show, I was extremely moved by NBC and the production company's concept to provide incredibly positive changes in the lives of different people. Seeing the initial prep work the producers had done for the pilot episode gave me reason to look at my own life -- and remind myself, once again, to never underestimate the impact that one life can have on another.

"I knew that whoever wound up hosting this show was going to have a front-row seat to some pretty amazing interaction with some very deserving people. I'm so glad my name was thrown into the pot and I look forward to working with NBC Universal Television Studio and executive producer Andrew Glassman -- and I hope that together, we are able to make a lot of dreams come true."

Each wish will involve a deeply personal story and viewers will follow the deserving families as Grant and her team of experts help revive their wishes and bring them to life.

Andrew Glassman (NBC's "Average Joe" seasons 1-4) and Jason Raff (NBC's "Average Joe" seasons 1-4) are executive producers.

"There's an incredible diversity to the people we are going to meet and the heartwarming stories we are going to tell along the way," said Glassman. "We have already started to feel the magic, as people started sharing their wishes with us. While our team is there to help, ultimately, this show will be about people helping people make their wishes and dreams come true."

Production on the pilot has already begun.

"Three Wishes" is executive produced by Andrew Glassman and NBC Universal Television Studio.
