(September 25, 2012 – Burbank, CA) From London, England, to BlueBell, Alabama, Olympic athlete McKayla Maroney’s fast-moving career is nothing to sneer at. The petite gymnast, a member of the gold medal–winning U.S. team in the 2012 Summer Olympics, will guest star in an upcoming episode of “Hart of Dixie,” the fish-out-of-water comedic drama about small-town living, big-city attitudes and complicated love triangles starring Rachel Bilson. In the episode, Maroney will guest star as Tonya, a friend of Rose’s (played by recurring guest star McKaley Miller), who comes to Rose’s defense. Sounds like a winning role! Airing Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW, the second season of “Hart of Dixie,” produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Fake Empire, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, premieres October 2.
