RACHEL BILSON STARS IN THE CW'S FISH-OUT-OF-WATER SERIES ABOUT A NEW YORK CITY DOCTOR ADJUSTING TO LIFE IN A SMALL SOUTHERN TOWN - Fast-talking New Yorker Zoe Hart has her life all figured out until she is turned down for a prestigious fellowship she had been certain she would get. Desperate, she decides to finally accept the offer of a kindly stranger, Dr. Harley Wilkes, whom she met at her medical school graduation, and who had proposed she join his small medical practice in Bluebell, Alabama.

Warner Bros. writeup:
Everything had been going according to plan for fast-talking New Yorker Zoe Hart. Beautiful, privileged and talented, she was on her way to becoming a heart surgeon, just like her father. But when she's told she doesn't have the requisite bedside manner to get an important fellowship she was counting on getting -- that she doesn't have the heart to be a heart surgeon -- Zoe's devastated. Desperate, she decides to finally accept the offer of a kindly stranger, Dr. Harley Wilkes, whom she met at her medical school graduation, and who had proposed she join his small medical practice in Bluebell, Alabama.

When Zoe arrives in quaint, picturesque Bluebell, she is instantly befriended by a handsome lawyer -- and the town's golden boy -- George Tucker. George is excited to discover that Zoe is from New York, where he lived for several years before returning to his hometown. Zoe is encouraged after meeting this true southern gentleman, but her mood quickly turns dark when she arrives at the doctor's office to discover that Dr. Wilkes has passed away -- and that he has inexplicably left his practice to her.

Complicating matters further, Zoe finds that the practice is shared with the other local doctor, Brick Breeland, an imposing figure who isn't pleased to share the practice with anyone, let alone an outsider from New York City. Equally displeased by Zoe's presence is Brick's daughter, Lemon, a sweet southern belle whose disposition turns sour when it comes to Zoe. Lemon relishes her position as part of one of Bluebell's most prominent families -- and, most off-putting for Zoe, as George Tucker's fiancé.

Zoe finds a place to live in a guest house on the property of Bluebell's mayor, Lavon Hayes. Lavon is a former NFL star who takes a liking to Zoe and quickly becomes her confidante. Zoe's new neighbors include local bad-boy Wade Kinsella, a mischievous charmer who sets off sparks with Zoe. Dr. Zoe Hart just might find she belongs more in this town than she ever could have imagined.
