Lexington native Laura Bell Bundy will guest star on at least two episodes of The CW’s Hart of Dixieaccording to HuffPost TV, apparently stirring the show’s romantic pot.

Bundy will play Shelby, billed as a potential love interest for leading man Scott Porter, who plays George Tucker.

Hart of Dixie, which is entering its second season, focuses on  The OC veteran Rachel Bilson as Dr. Zoe Hart, an aspiring surgeon whose career gets rerouted to a small practice in Bluebell, Ala. — a fictional town, though it does have a website. According to HuffPost TV — sorry, I have not followed the series — last season ended with George coming to profess his love for Zoe, so Bundy’s Shelby seems to be setting up a triangle here.

Bundy, best known for originating the roles of Amber von Tussle in Hairspray — The Musical and Elle Woods in Legally Blonde — The Musical on Broadway, is no stranger to TV, having played guest roles on series from Home Improvement to How I Met Your Mother. She has also been pursuing a country music career and is set to release her second album on Mercury Nashville soon.

Bundy’s first appearance on on Hart will reportedly be on the season’s third episode, Oct. 16.
