Scott Porter Cast in HART OF DIXIE Pilot

Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Good Wife) has found his next gig. TVLine reports that Porter is joining Rachel Bilson in the CW dramedy pilot HART OF DIXIE.

Hart of Dixie focuses on Zoe (Bilson), a doctor from Manhattan who inherits a small medical practice in the rural south. Once there, she meets all the eccentric characters we’ve come to expect from small towns on television.

Porter will star as the fiancé of Zoe’s chief rival at her new medical practice. A long-time resident of the town, he and Zoe will apparently form quite the connection.

This sounds remarkably like Everwood: The Next Generation. If it turns out to be half as good as that wonderful show, I’m all in. What do you think?
