from the INCEPTION MEDIA GROUP - PRESS RELEASE:
"Growing the Big One" will premiere nationally on the Hallmark Channel on Saturday, October 23. The holiday-themed film is about radio talk show host Emma Silver (Shannen Doherty, “Charmed,” Beverly Hills, 90210”) who finds some big life changes in store when her grandfather’s passing brings her back home to Valleyville, a sleepy town known for its annual giant pumpkin-growing contest. Upon discovering her grandfather’s secret journal, she decides to pay off his massive farm debts by winning the contest’s $50,000 grand prize. Along the way, she strikes sparks with her handsome neighbor who wants to teach her how to cultivate a record-breaking prize-winner. Torn between a new hit gardening show, the possible love of a lifetime, a quirky town full of colorful characters and a fast-approaching deadline that could take her back to the big city, Emma has to make some big decisions. This irresistible Hallmark Channel original film is a down-home charmer that creates the perfect recipe for love and laughs.
“Mrs. Washington Goes to Smith” aired on the Hallmark Channel in 2009, and features Golden Globe-winning and Emmy-nominated actress Cybill Shepherd ("Moonlighting", “Cybill”) as Alice, a woman who rebounds from divorce by enrolling in Smith College to become a teacher more than 20 years after dropping out of school. A housing shortage places her with a much younger roommate who thinks she has enough difficulty in her life already. Their school year together promises lots of major life changes including a glamorous makeover, a romantic rivalry over their charming poetry teacher and Alice’s surprise starring role on the school’s basketball team. Along the way they both get a valuable education neither of them could have possibly expected. This winning story of friendship, the power of perseverance and the beauty of self-discovery graduates with top honors.
Both films will be released on home video in the fall.
I will post the DVDs on my blog when they are available to order.
