Show Life: 2011 - 2015
There have only been a handful of shows set in Alabama, including "Any Day Now," "Big Law: Deputy Butterbean," "Big Shrimpin'," "Looking for Alaska," "On the Job," "The Prancing Elites Project" and "Rocket City Rednecks." Don't remember these? Well, they were pretty short-lived.
"Hart of Dixie," however, lasted four years and earned solid reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the show has a score of 81 percent from critics and 87 percent from viewers. This helped it endure for 76 episodes, which is good in modern-day TV terms.
The CW show starred Rachel Bilson as the big city-doctor, Zoe Hart, who finds herself deep in the heart of Dixie. (See what they did there?) It's the same fish-out-of-water story everyone loves to tell about northerns who discover the South is actually not a bad place to live. Worked for "Hart of Dixie," at least.
