Hart of Dixie" follows Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), a new doctor from New York who thinks that she knows it all. Since graduating at the top of her class, she took after her father and became a cardio-thoracic surgeon. However, when Zoe's plans fall apart, she turns to Dr. Harley Wilkes to help him with his practice in Bluebell, Alabama. However, she gets there to find that he passed away and gave his half of the practice to her. She meets Lemon Breeland (Jamie King) and finds that the south isn't so hospitable as it is portrayed. Brink Breeland is the owner of the other half and is not happy to have to share the profits with her.
However, things are not all dark for Zoe when she meets Lavon Hayes (Cress Williams), a former football star and George Tucker (Scott Porter), a handsome lawyer who is Lemon's fiance. When she is about to pack up and go back to New York, her mother comes and because of her snobby behavior, realizes that life in Bluebell isn't bad at all. Created by Leila Gerstein ("Gossip Girl," "Eli Stone"), Josh Schwartz ("Gossip Girl," "Chuck," "The O.C."), Stephanie Savage ("Gossip Girl," "The O.C."), Len Goldstein and Jason Ensler ("Gossip Girl," "Chuck") "Hart of Dixie" is a new fresh idea about the South and their ways.
