Rachel Bilson (The O.C.) leads a stellar ensemble cast in this fish-out-of-water comedic drama about small-town living, big-city attitudes and complicated love triangles. Set in the lovely town of BlueBell, Alabama, where the neighbours take care of one another, the mailman knows your name, there’s a parade every Tuesday … and people still aren’t quite used to New York transplant Dr. Zoe Hart.
