Rachel Bilson To Star in New CW Show

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?
