MICROSOFT'S BILL GATES JOINS NBC'S "THREE WISHES" TEAM TO HELP MAKE A YOUNG BOY'S WISH COME TRUE IN SPECIAL EPISODE AIRING DECEMBER 9

Wishes Are Also Granted For Eighteen-Year-Old Aspiring Actress and Twelve-Year-Old Space Enthusiast

BURBANK � December 7, 2005 �NBC's "Three Wishes" will give an aspiring actress, a wanna-be astronaut and a 10-year-old boy who wishes to be Bill Gates for the day the chance to experience their dream jobs in a special episode airing Friday, December 9 (9-10 p.m. ET).

The "Three Wishes" team � Amy Grant, Carter Oosterhouse, Eric Stromer and Diane Mizota � grants ten-year-old Kiyaan a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet his hero and inspiration -- Bill Gates -- and the chance to try doing his job. Kiyaan, who lives in Simi Valley, CA and recently did a report at school about the Microsoft Chairman, gets to visit with Gates and to step into his shoes at Microsoft for the day at the company's Redmond, WA headquarters.

Eighteen-year-old Jenna, who recently moved to Hollywood from Marshall, MI, refuses to let the physical challenges brought on by scoliosis keep her from her dream of pursuing an acting career. Her dream comes true when "Three Wishes" gives Jenna the full star treatment and some incredible surprises, including her television debut on NBC's hit daytime series "Passions" opposite Harmony's hottest new couple -- Emily Harper and Dylan Fergus (who play Fancy Crane and Noah Bennett).

Twelve-year-old Stevie Moon, a seventh grader from Westerville, OH, dreams of being an astronaut. His wish is granted when "Three Wishes" sends Stevie to space camp in Huntsville, AL and then on a high-flying adventure he'll never forget in a zero-gravity aircraft.

Plus, "Three Wishes" will follow up with Bill Logue, the terminally ill father whose wishes for his family were granted in an earlier episode from Brookings, SD, and see what miraculous event has taken place in his life since his appearance on the show.

Andrew Glassman (NBC's "Average Joe 1-4") and Jason Raff ("Average Joe 1-4") are the executive producers of the series for Glassman Media and NBC Universal Television Studio.
