Hart of Dixie is a comedy-drama set in the small Alabama town of BlueBell. It has been shown on the CW Television Network since 2011. New Yorker Zoe Hart had her life planned. She would receive a fellowship at the hospital where she had just completed her residency, and she would be a cardio-thoracic surgeon like her father. However, things don’t work out the way she had planned. She doesn’t get the fellowship, and instead, she accepts an offer from Dr. Harley Wilkes to work at his medical practice in BlueBell. She had met Dr. Wilkes at her medical school graduation, and he had asked her several times to come and work with him.
