Big News From Grand Rock follows Leonard Crane (Ennis Esmer), the editor of the Grand Rock Weekly Ledger, the struggling paper facing bankruptcy in a small no-news town. Searching relentlessly for the killer story to bring back readers, he finds it, not in the real world, but in old movies in a video rental store. The plan pays off as one fabricated story after another brings excitement and readers back to the paper. But inevitably the hoax unravels as big city reporter Lucy (Meredith MacNeill) heads into town to follow-up on one of his more scandalous stories. She exposes Leonard, but they are both shocked when they stumble upon evidence that one of his more outrageous stories may just turn out to be true. Nothing like a little media scandal, and corruption at city hall to raise circulation numbers. This modern take on the fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf was the winner of the 2009 Telefilm Pitch This! contest.
