Jaime King, who starred on four seasons of Hart of Dixie, has joined the cast of Ice Cream in the Cupboard, an indie drama adapted from the book by Pat Moffett.

Drew Pollins is directing the project, which hails from Serenity Media Group and is shooting in Los Angeles. Serenity's CEO Christie Hsiao is producing.

The book tells of a couple’s fractured life when the wife is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Claudia Ferri (The Killing) and Dana Ashbrook (Twin Peaks) are playing the couple. King will play a neurologist who tries to help the duo.

The part is the latest feature get for King, who saw her dramedy Bitch, which also starred Jason Ritter and Marianna Palka, premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The actress also wrapped shooting Escape Plan 2, in which she is the female lead opposite Sylvester Stallone and Dave Bautista.

After King shoots Ice Cream, she will segue to How to Cook Your Daughter, a drama based on a memoir by Jessica Hendra and Blake Morrison. The memoir tells of Hendra’s experience growing up as the daughter of a National Lampoon editor and suffering verbal and sexual abuse at his hands.

King is repped by Gersh, WME, manager Oren Segal and Myman Greenspan.
