In the series, 26 contestants are given 72 hours, $3,000 and the opportunity to fulfill a long-held dream or desire.

The book helps the reader map out goals and develop plans to make those ambitions possible. A version was also shot exclusively for the New Zealand market, reflecting Phil Keoghan's fondness for his native country. Also hosted by Keoghan, the show proceeded on much the same premise but with New Zealand contestants. It premiered on New Zealand's TV2 on Sunday November 12, 2006.

Ten thirty-minute episodes were filmed, hosted by Canadian adventurer Bruce Kirkby following a May 2007 casting tour through the country by Keoghan.
