NBC”s new series “Three Wishes,” starring five-time GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist Amy Grant debuted Friday, September 23, after gaining much media exposure from outlets including The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide and ChristianActivities.com.
The series follows Amy Grant in an unscripted format in which Grant leads a team of experts to a small town to “grant” wishes to help make the hopes and unbelievable dreams of deserving people come true. Viewers will follow the deeply personal and heartwarming stories as Grant and her team transform these hopes into a life-changing reality.
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.”

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.
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.
“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.
