Jaime King has signed on to star opposite Rachel Bilson in CW's drama pilot Hart of Dixie, from writer Leila Gerstein, WBTV and Fake Empire.

The dramedy centers on a young New York City doctor (Rachel Bilson) who inherits a medical practice in a small Southern town inhabited by an eclectic and eccentric group of characters. Jaime King will play a beautiful, overly effusive young woman, one of the elite "Blue Belles", a group of southern debutante-types who keep the town history alive by performing in period dress.
