Hart of Dixie is about the story of Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), a new doctor from New York who believes that she knows everything. Soon after she graduated at the top of her class, she already made a decision to follow her father and becomes cardio-thoracic surgeon just like her dad. All her expectations will come to end as she, in contrast to her knowing actually have no heart to be a surgeon.

She’s dropped from the glossy New York hospital where her boyfriend and her mentor both dumped her to a dusty old bus that drops her off in the middle of nowhere. Of course a handsome southern boy comes to her rescue and whisks her into the “backwards” Alabama town of Bluebell.

When she comes back, she finds out her mysterious recruiter has passed away and that he inexplicably left his share of his medical practice to her – the other half belongs to a doctor who wants the whole town to himself and isn’t above acting like the big, bad wolf to get it.

In addition, there is her endless number of suitors who at some point play along conveniently to her situations. Along with other casts of the show, Jaime King plays Lemon Breeland , Cress Williams as Lavon Hayes, Wilson Bethel as Wade Kinsella, and McKaley Miller as Rose Hattenbarger.

And so, yes we get the point and set-up of this story. But will this ever work for a tv show? Well, it doesn’t work all that well. It’s not the inexplicable plot points, the typical dry Bilson delivery, or the melodramatic tendencies that do the series harm. It’s not even the lack of a significant spark or draw.
