Shannen Doherty ("Beverly Hills, 90210") stars in "Growing the Big One," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie about a young woman who inherits her family farm which is deeply in debt and decides to enter a pumpkin-growing contest in hopes of saving it with the winnings. In the process, she falls in love with both her new partner in the pumpkin contest and the simple life of her grandfather's small town.
Emma Silver (Doherty), a big city girl and radio talk show host, returns home when her grandfather passes away. She soon finds out that her grandfather's farm is saddled with debt because he couldn't bear to sell it and see it turned into a parking lot or a highway. He also leaves Emma with a handful of his prize-winning pumpkin seeds and a note that says he's counting on her to take care of things that he couldn't.
Emma's new boss sees it as an opportunity for a gardening radio/webcam show, even though Emma knows nothing about the topic. Her grandfather's handsome neighbor is willing to help out but he wants to share half the prize money. Reluctantly, Emma agrees to her new partner's terms and soon realizes she's signed on for more than she bargained for.
