Rachel Bilson has signed on to star in the drama pilot "Hart of Dixie" for the CW, Bilson's rep confirms.
The move will reunite Bilson her with Josh Schwartz, who created her series "The O.C." Schwartz will co-produce the new project along with Stephanie Savage, his partner in the Fake Empire production company.
In the pilot, Bilson will star as a New York-based doctor who moves to a small southern town after she inherits a medical practice there.
Bilson most recently appeared on two episodes of "How I Met Your Mother," and in the big-screen offerings "Waiting for Forever," "New York, I Love You" and "Jumper."
