One Tree Hill is a teen television drama which takes place in a small fictional North Carolina town. It was created by Mark Schwahn and premiered on September 23, 2003 on The WB Television Network. The show continued to air on The WB until May 3, 2006, as it was announced that the network would merge with UPN to form The CW Television Network.

Production
Conception
Mark Schwahn originally planned for One Tree Hill to be a feature length film. He pitched the idea around town but under the advice of a WB front man, he revised the movie into an hour-long teen drama series. Tree Hill is a fictional town, named from the song "One Tree Hill" by U2 (which is, in turn, named after a landmark in New Zealand). Schwahn named the town "Tree Hill" because while he was writing the idea for the show he had been listening to the album The Joshua Tree by U2. The show was originally to be

called An Unkindness of Ravens. At the start of the show, fans often asked Schwahn why the show was named One Tree Hill when the town was just called Tree Hill. The question is ostensibly answered when Karen tells Lucas in Episode 1.22 that "There is only one Tree Hill - and it’s your home." 1, Tree Hill is also the address of Tree Hill High School.

Original cast
Chad Michael Murray portrays Lucas Scott. At the beginning, He and Nathan start out as enemies but bond as friends and as brothers as the show progresses. Lucas’ best friend is Haley and he has been a romantic interest for Peyton Sawyer and Brooke Davis. Lucas has a serious heart condition, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) which he concealed for a long time. Aside from basketball, his greatest passion is literature and quotes from the books he reads are used on the show. In Season Five, he is a successful writer and head coach of the Ravens basketball team. He was in a relationship with his editor, Lindsey Strauss but conflicted by his feelings for former love Peyton. This ultimately leads to Lindsey leaving him at the altar. In the season finale, he asks either Brooke, Peyton or Lindsey to marry him. At the beginning of Season Six, it is revealed to be Peyton. The two fly to Las Vegas to get married, but feel that it isn’t romantic enough. They decide to fly home to Tree Hill, and have the wedding there. Lucas then receives an offer to turn his book An Unkindness of Ravens into a movie. He and Julian, an ex-boyfriend of Peyton, become partners as far as movie-making decisions go. The film is later canceled, and Julian moves back to Los Angeles. Peyton discovers that she is pregnant with Lucas’ baby, and they begin expecting their first child together. It is revealed that Peyton has a condition called placenta previa, which means that her and the baby could both die in delivery. Lucas and Peyton later marry and have their reception at Tric. In the season Finale Peyton gives birth to their baby daughter Sawyer Brooke Scott. James Lafferty portrays Nathan Scott, the son that Dan did claim, although his relationships with both his parents are strained at the best of times. Nathan marries Haley in Season One, and renews his vows with her in Season Three, and becomes a father to James Lucas "Jamie" Scott in Season Four. In Season One, he and Lucas start out as enemies, but bond as friends and brothers as the show progresses. Nathan is the star player of the Ravens and is named "Most Valuable Player" in Season Four. Also, in Season Four, he is investigated for shaving points. He loses his basketball scholarship to Duke University due to his admission of point-

Episode format
Episodes follow a regular structure. An episode usually begins with a recap of events relevant to the upcoming narrative; however this is sometimes dropped due to time constraints. During the first four seasons, the theme tune is played either immediately after the recap, or after the first few scenes. Whenever an episode features sensitive or violent subjects, or when an episode’s running length is close to the total allotted time, there are no opening credits but only One Tree Hill written on a dark blue background. Since the beginning of Season Five, the theme tune was abandoned, and only the single title shot is used. One Tree Hill is known for its numerous voiceovers featuring either literary quotes, or characters reflecting on events of the episode. Most of them are made by Chad Michael Murray’s character Lucas Scott, however there have been several occurrences where other characters have done so. James Lafferty, Hilarie Burton, Sophia Bush, Bethany Joy Galeotti and Paul Johansson have narrated various episodes in their starring roles as Nathan Scott, Peyton Sawyer, Brooke Davis, Haley James Scott and Dan Scott, respectively. Guest stars Bryan Greenberg, Sheryl Lee, Torrey DeVitto and Ashley Rickards have given their voice to an episode each, playing the roles of Jake Jagielski, Ellie Harp, Carrie and Sam Walker. There have also been episodes that feature multiple narrators. Cast members Lee Norris, Antwon Tanner, Danneel Harris, Barry Corbin and Jackson Brundage voiced their characters Mouth, Skills, Rachel, Coach Brian "Whitey" Durham and Jamie respectively. Characters who interact with the main cast such as Bevin, Chase, Shelly and Glenda helped to narrate the joint episodes being portrayed by Bevin Prince, Stephen Colletti, Elisabeth Harnois and Amber Wallace.[3]

shaving in two games. Basketball has always been his greatest passion and he sees it as his "way out." In Season Five, a fight leaves Nathan near-paralyzed and his dreams shattered, though he later regains the use of his legs and slowly starts to make a comeback in basketball. Nathan starts playing "slam ball" but after being attacked by a rival, Jamie asks him to stop, fearing that Nathan would end up hurt again. He gets approval from Haley and Jamie to join a semipro team known as the Charleston Chiefs. He briefly competes with the team’s lead point guard, a cocky player who thinks Nathan’s playing is "outdated". After this player leaves, Nathan continues on the team without much incident. Later, he and Haley contemplate moving. He was eventually recruted to play for the Charlotte Bobcats. Hilarie Burton portrays Peyton Sawyer, whose two greatest passions in life are music and art; she uses her art to express the issues that play out in her life. Brooke Davis is her best friend, and she is also close friends with Haley. In Season One, Peyton is a cheerleader and dates Nathan Scott, the biggest basketball star in Tree Hill High. In Season Three, she discovers that she is adopted. In Season Four, she meets who she thinks is her half-brother Derek. His suspicious behavior tips off both Peyton and Lucas to seek the truth, but not before "Derek’s" obsession with Peyton leads him to break into her house and attempt to hurt her. She is saved by Lucas and the real Derek. After getting to know her birth mother, Ellie, Peyton loses her to breast cancer. In Season Five, a lonely Peyton is working for a record company in LA. While in LA, Lucas asked Peyton to marry him, but she isn’t ready for marriage. She and Brooke decide to return to Tree Hill, where she starts her own record label, Red Bedroom Records, and battles her feelings for Lucas, who is engaged to Lindsey. Lindsey later leaves him at the alter because she believes that Lucas is still in love with Peyton. In the Season Five finale Lucas asks her to Las Vegas to get married, but once there they feel that it isn’t romantic enough. They decide to fly home to Tree Hill, and have the wedding there. Peyton has a health scare after collapsing in her office. She discovers she is pregnant with Lucas’ baby, and they are now expecting their first child. As Peyton is preparing for their wedding, she feels Lucas should be more involved. Since

She marries Nathan in Season One, renews her vows with him in Season Three, and in Season Four gives birth to their son, Jamie. In Season Two she has a great career opportunity, making music with the help of Chris Keller, a selfish, arrogant musician who kisses her, which angers Nathan. She goes on tour, leaving Nathan behind. In early Season Three, Nathan and Haley have relationship issues, but eventually overcome these difficulties. In Season Three, at Brooke’s request, she becomes a cheerleader. In Season Four she gets hit by a car that Dante is driving. She is pregnant with Nathan’s baby at the time, but luckily, Haley and her unborn baby both survive. In Season Five, as well as balancing the roles of wife and mother, she is an English teacher at Tree Hill High, and is also planning a musical comeback. In Season Five she tries very hard to help a difficult student, Quentin, who bonds with Nathan and Jamie, and is later killed in season 6. She then supports Nathan’s passion for basketball, and soothes Jamie’s grief over the death of Quentin, playing a large part in his recovery. Later, she and Nathan contemplate moving. Sophia Bush portrays Brooke Davis. In high school, Brooke is captain of the cheerleading squad, and a seemingly beautiful and a perfect girl next door. She is Peyton’s best friend, but is also very close with Haley. She is girlfriend to Lucas twice but their relationship doesn’t work out either time. In Season One, Brooke was the popular girl that everyone loved, and captain of the cheerleader squad. Though her life seemed perfect, she would be in pain dealing with her distant parents, her friend’s inability to take her seriously, and the betrayal of her boyfriend and her best friend. In Season Two, Brooke started becoming more independent and the girl next door. She ran and won high school president, and stopped her partying ways. She left Tree Hill in the season finale to go to California. In Season Three, Brooke came back to finish her senior year. She creates a clothing line, "Clothes Over Bros". In Season

4, Brooke isolates herself from Lucas and Peyton after their betrayal and tries to realize what kind of person she is on her own, as well as what she wants to do with her life after high school. Brooke reconnects with Peyton midseason, as well as with Lucas near the end of high school. In Season Five,Clothes Over Bros is a household name, but despite Brooke’s success, she is unhappy in her personal life, so she and Peyton return to Tree Hill where Brooke turns a now-closed Karen’s Café into a Clothes Over Bros store. She then reveals her desire to have a baby and looks after Baby Angie, who is in the US for heart surgery. Brooke is devastated when the time comes for Angie to return to her home country. Brooke also deals with her mother’s prominent force over her company and their terrible relationship. In Season Six, Brooke is attacked and robbed at her store. She isolates herself again from her friends and claims she "fell down the stairs" to excuse her visible wounds. She then buys a gun and asks Deb to teach her how to use it. Eventually, she gives up her company to her mother, Victoria, and tells her she’s no longer her daughter. Brooke then fosters a rebellious teenage girl named Sam. She and Sam start off at odds but gradually develop a more mother-daughter type of relationship. It is furthered when Sam is kidnapped by Brooke’s attacker. Brooke saves Sam and sends her attacker to jail. She helps with Lucas’s movie as a costume designer, though the film is later canceled. She soon starts a relationship with Julian Baker, the film’s movie producer who also happens to be Peyton’s ex. She and Julian break up when Brooke declines his invitation to join him in Los Angeles. She later learns that Sam is being sought out by her birth mother. Sam later moves in with her birth mother. After reconciling with her mother, Brooke flies to Los Angeles and tells Julian that she loves him. Paul Johansson portrays Dan Scott, a once great basketball player, who is father to both Nathan and Lucas, although he never wanted anything to do with the latter. After his marriage to Deb crumbles and she and Nathan try to rid themselves of him, Dan’s evil comes to the forefront. After Dan finds Deb sleeping with his brother, Keith, a war begins between the two brothers, culminating with Dan fatally shooting his brother in Season Three, believing that Keith had set his car dealership alight. After discovering

One Tree Hill (TV series)
that Deb was actually behind the fire, Dan tried to make amends by supporting Karen through her pregnancy and started to turn over a new leaf. However, after Lucas discovers he is Keith’s murderer, he is placed in jail. Four years later, he is granted parole and tries to redeem himself to his family, because he is dying of HCM. In the season finale, he is knocked down by a car moments before his beeper goes off to inform him that he is ready for his heart transplant. It is revealed that in the new season Carrie (the crazy lady who was once Jamie’s nanny) was the one who hit Dan in the car accident. She intends to use him to get Jamie. After she gets him she intends to kill Dan. Haley ends up saving Dan. Dan has made rare appearances since his abduction. He is currently waiting via beeper on when he can receive a heart transplant. Barry Corbin portrays Coach Brian "Whitey" Durham, the Ravens coach for over 35 years, retiring in Season Four. He and Dan never saw eye-to-eye and often bickered over their differing opinions on the team. Whitey often laments the death of his wife, Camilla, and the fact that he didn’t spend more time with her while she was alive. He retires after the Ravens finally win him the much-coveted NC State Championship title but later takes a coaching position in a college three hours away from Tree Hill, so that Nathan has the chance to play college basketball. Whitey made an appearance in the 6th season finale. Craig Sheffer portrays Keith Scott, Dan’s older, kinder, under-achieving brother. After Dan chose Deb over Karen, Keith helped Karen to raise Lucas (acting as a surrogate father to him) and fell in love with her but they only got together in Season Three. He had a recurring drinking problem and an ongoing rivalry with his brother which involved him sleeping with Deb and Dan paying Jules to seduce Keith and then dump him to get back at Keith for this. When Dan mistook him for the one who tried to kill him in the dealership fire, he shot him after the siege at Tree Hill High, killing him instantly. Since his death, Karen has given birth to Keith’s daughter, Lily Roe-Scott. Keith has been haunting Dan as a teen and as an adult ghost, but later forgives him for what he has done. He has guided his nephews (Lucas and Nathan) as a sort of Guardian angel throughout Season Four.

Sponsored plot elements
AT&T is prominently inserted into the show as a sponsor. Most of the characters on the show have AT&T Mobility (and earlier, Cingular) cell phones. The company has given One Tree Hill fans the chance to make several choices about the shows plot. The first was whether or not Nathan and Taylor would kiss when they met at the ’Swinging Donkey’ bar in Season Two; the fans chose for them not to.[4] The second was what Nathan and Haley’s second wedding song would be in the finale of Season Three; the fans chose "More Than Anyone" by Gavin DeGraw. The company also allowed the fans to choose which band would perform at the senior prom in Season Four; the fans chose Within Reason, a band from Birmingham, Alabama.[5] Sunkist is another sponsor which can be spotted at concerts in episodes such as "When it Isn’t Like it Should Be" and "Just Watch the Fireworks", in the characters’ fridges, and on the school’s vending machines. It held a contest to choose which town the characters would visit in "It Gets the Worst at Night", and Honey Grove, Texas won. Nike makes multiple appearances in the show. The Tree Hill high school basketball team wore Nike jerseys and shoes. Almost all athletic shoes worn by Nathan during his basketball run were Nike shoes. The characters also make references to Nike athletes including Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Carmelo Anthony. Nike also provided the film crew with their own sweater vests for season 5.[6] In Episode 4.04: "Can’t Stop This Thing We Started", Rachel took part in a Maxim photoshoot which mirrored a real life photoshoot for Danneel Harris, Hilarie Burton and Sophia Bush, in stores on October 14, 2006, where Danneel wore the same outfit as her character. In Episode 4.07: "All These Things That I’ve Done", America’s Next Top Model winner of a challenge, CariDee English got to play a small role as a model named Tia in a fashion show. Macy’s had a competition to win a walk-on role on the show. The winner would get to spend time with the cast, see the show in production, attend a charity event and appear in one episode.[7] In Episode 5.17: "Hate is Safer Than Love", Mia, played by Kate Voegele agrees to take part in both Rock the Vote and a Starburst funded concert.

Music
Music plays a significant part in both the plot and the movement of the scenes throughout an episode. Several scenes are tied together seamlessly at the end of each show and the song, which is usually played in its entirety, helps create a singular mood from seemingly unconnected events. Many of the episodes in One Tree Hill are named after songs. The show has a long list of artists that have participated in the show; Gavin DeGraw, Sheryl Crow, Michelle Branch, The Wreckers, Tyler Hilton, Jimmy Eat World, The Honorary Title, Fall Out Boy, Angels & Airwaves, Nada Surf, Jack’s Mannequin, Michelle Featherstone, Lupe Fiasco and Within Reason. Season Five featured Kate Voegele in an important character role as Mia Catallano, The Honorary Title and Kevin Federline in another character role as Jason. Bethany Joy Galeotti who plays Haley James Scott, Bryan Greenberg who played Jake Jagielski and Tyler Hilton who played Chris Keller have also performed on the show. Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz appeared in an episode after the band’s performance as himself, in a storyline where he became a love-interest for Peyton. Other well-known bands whose songs have featured on the show include: Oasis (band), Radiohead, Stereophonics, Mclusky, Snow Patrol, Frightened Rabbit, Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, Bon Iver, Keane, Starsailor, Travis, Feeder, Dashboard Confessional, Pink, The Cure, Switchfoot and Foo Fighters. The show has released three soundtrack albums: One Tree Hill - Music From The WB Television Series, Vol. 1, Friends with Benefit: Music from the Television Series One Tree Hill, Volume 2 and The Road Mix: Music from the Television Series One Tree Hill, Volume 3. Proceeds of the second soundtrack go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation to tie in with a storyline on the show involving breast cancer. On November 13 2008, iTunes published a soundtrack called "Music From One Tree Hill" that contained songs from the sixth season.[8] Mark Schwahn has revealed that each episode title is named after a particular song that has something in common with the theme of the episode. For example, episode 1.01 ("The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most") is named after a Dashboard Confessional song of the same name. In this

episode, Lucas realizes that basketball, which had once been his safe place, is now the place that he has come to fear the most after joining the Ravens. One Tree Hill also made history by having Led Zeppelin’s song "Babe I’m Gonna Leave You" in its Season 3 finale. Led Zeppelin has never licensed their songs on network TV (the only other time was on HBO’s cable series The Sopranos). One Tree Hill is the first non-cable network television series to ever have a licensed Led Zeppelin song on their show.

Ratings
Seasonal rankings (based on average total viewers per episode) of One Tree Hill on The WB and The CW. In its third season, The WB moved the show from Tuesday to Wednesday. After it was moved, the show suffered a ratings decline which many thought was due to the timeslot change. A landmark episode in the third season, "With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept," which featured two tragic deaths, aired on March 1, 2006, raking in a 2.5/4 rating, which was the highest rating for Season Three. The May 3, 2006 season finale pulled in a 2.3/4 rating with a 1.4 rating for adults 18-49, the show’s biggest audience in that season with the exception of the episode on March 1. With the announcement that The WB and UPN would be merging to create one network, The CW, rumors of cancellation soon surfaced.
