(from ABC Family's press release, August 2011) "State of Georgia" will feature back-to-back episodes on its summer finale night, Wednesday, August 17 beginning at 9:00PM ET/PT on ABC Family. Kicking off at 9:00PM ET/PT, Georgia and Jo visit a community garden and meet two organic farmers, Amos (Josh Janowicz) and Jeb (Charlie Weber), and end up planning a double date. On the date, Georgia and Jo falsely inform the two farmers that they grow their own produce in their apartment and invite them to dinner. In order to keep up with their charade for a second date, Georgia and Jo plant different types of produce in the apartment as well as purchase a goat to make it seem like they make their own cheese - but can they keep it up, and are the two farmers worth all the effort? Then at 9:30PM ET/PT, Georgia's in trouble after defying Aunt Honey and borrowing one her dresses to wear for an upcoming audition. As soon as Georgia puts on the dress, it gets caught in a desk chair. She enlists Jo to help, but with her clumsy ways, Jo only makes things worse. Realizing they cannot call Aunt Honey, the girls have no other choice but to call Lewis to their rescue. Will he be the hero they need him to be?
