As the weather heats up, it's time for the gritty regular season dramas to make way for lighter fare as TV view- ers shift into vacation mode. ABC offers summertime audiences an upbeat take on the police procedural with its latest prime-time series. Rachel Bilson ("Hart of Dixie") stars as Sam Swift, an actress who shadows L.A. private investigator Eddie Valetik (Eddie Cibrian, "CSI: Miami") while researching her comeback role in "Take Two," airing Thursday, July 12, on ABC. Swift was once the star of a hit cop show, but her very public bender and subse- quent stint in rehab has her fighting to get back on top. Valetik grudg- ingly takes her on, and he is soon surprised to learn that she actually has a knack for detective work. The result is the kind of will-they- switch on a dime, and she brings a real innocence to her character," the actor said of Bilson. The success of the series relies heavily on the performances of the two leads, and luckily, both stars have plenty of experience in front of the camera. Bilson is part of a show business family with roots in RKO Pictures, where her great-grand- father worked in the movie trailer department. Early on in her career, she appeared in "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" and "8 Simple Rules," before being cast as Summer Roberts in the teen-centric prime-time soap "The O.C." in 2003. The role made her a bona fide star, and she later landed on the big screen in "The Last Kiss" (2006) and "Jumper" (2008). Beginning in 2011, she headlined the CW series "Hart of Dixie," and more recently appeared in CMT's "Nashville." Cibrian has an equally impressive list of credentials.
