For those of us who missed Rachel Bilson in her primetime element, weep no more. According to TV Line, Bilson is close to signing on to a CW comedic drama for Fall 2011 pilot season. The O.C. and Gossip Girl producer Josh Schwartz is behind the project, entitled Hart Of Dixie. Bilson was attached to another Schwartz-produced NBC comedy that fell through, according to reports.
Hart Of Dixie is about a New York City doctor (Bilson) “who inherits a medical practice in a small Southern town inhabited by an eclectic and eccentric group of characters.” Why do I envision Sweet Home Alabama meets Gilmore Girls?
Bilson is busy promoting her new film, Waiting For Forever with all sorts of appearances, including Chelsea Lately last week in Los Angeles.
