The CW Network unveiled the schedule for its 2011-2012 primetime season today, a mix of shows featuring bold concepts, up-and-coming talent and proven TV stars like Rachel Bilson and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Hart of Dixie (cast photo above), from the Gossip Girl team of Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, stars Bilson as a medical school graduate whose dream of following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a cardio-thoracic surgeon falls apart. So she ends up running a small practice in Bluebell, Alabama.
Ringer stars Gellar as a woman who, after witnessing a murder, goes on the run, hiding out by assuming the life of her wealthy identical twin sister. She quickly learns her sister’s seemingly idyllic life is just as complicated and dangerous as the one she’s trying to leave behind.
The Secret Circle, from Kevin Williamson, the producer of The Vampire Diaries, is based on a popular series of books by author L.J. Smith. The network’s new reality series H8R, and Re-Modeled and The Frame at midseason are being described as “brash and loud,” by Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW.
