What do you get when you mix Gilmore Girls with equal parts Doc Hollywood and Sweet Home Alabama? That’d be The CW’s Hart of Dixie, which follows brusque young doctor Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) as she leaves NYC behind for life in the slower lane of picturesque Bluebell, Alabama. Once there, Zoe inherits a practice from a mysterious doctor; clashes with her local patients on a weekly basis; and flirts with the dashing George (Scott Porter), who happens to be engaged to her nemesis Lemon (Jaime King). ”It’s a third medical, a third fish-out-of-water, and a third romantic comedy,” explains exec producer Len Goldstein. Adds Bilson: ”It’s not often that you come across such a strong female role, and the fact that she has a funny bone — there’s comedy in it! — was appealing to me.” (Sept. 26)
