Hart of Dixie centers around main character Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), a new doctor who recently graduated from med school in New York. With a lack of jobs available in NYC, Zoe heads down to Alabama to work at a small private practice. She soon discovers that living down South may not be as fun as she thought. Zoe immediately causes trouble with Lemon (Jamie King), a Southern belle who is engaged to one of Zoe’s only allies in town, George (Scott Porter). With Lemon against her and George on her side Zoe must make friends with her attractive neighbor Wade (Wilson Bethel) and former football star Lavon (Cress Williams) if she is going to survive life in the Deep South. Expect strong accents, stunning dresses and a whole lot of romance.
Rachel Bilson stars as Zoe Hart, a cardio-thoracic surgeon who comes from a family of doctors. Even though she was raised in New York, Zoe accepts a position down South but soon finds herself out of place. This is Rachel Bilson’s largest television role since playing Summer Roberts on The O.C.

But, this doesn’t stop George and Zoe. Scott Porter has recently starred in Friday Night Lights and the CBC drama The Good Wife. He has also appeared in the movies Prom Night, The Good Guy and Dear John.
