Hart of Dixie is a new show to The CW that began this autumn. The basic plot line is about a young New Yorker, Dr Zoe Hart, who is probably the most dedicated and proficient medical student that the world has ever seen; however, slightly ironically, she lacks one thing: a heart. It is because of this that she misses out on a great medical fellowship and is told that she should come back when she has learnt to actually care about her patients – both physically and emotionally. She then decides to take up the offer from a complete stranger, Dr Harley Wilkes, to work in his practice.
Every year since her graduation Zoe has received letters from Dr Wilkes asking her to come and work for him and every single time she has declined, but not this time. So, Dr Zoe Hart arrives in the small and cosy town of Bluebell, Alabama, which is possibly the furthest thing from anything she knows. Upon arriving in Bluebell, she is shocked to find out that Dr Harvey Wilkes has, in fact, passed away and left half of his practice to her. With many maladies completely unknown to the city doctor, and a less than warm welcome from the townspeople, she begins to feel extremely out of her depth and finally she decides to leave. That is until her mother turns up with a piece of news that changes everything.
