10 Things You Didn’t Know About One Tree Hill
One Tree Hill has had a loyal legion of fans since its 9 season run from 2003-2012, which means that there is a lot of background information surrounding the show that we’re all aware of. For instance by now we are all aware that One Tree Hill is named after the song off of U2’s “Joshua Tree” album and that on-screen loves Sophia Bush (Brooke) and Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) were married in real life. Like many long running shows, however, there is probably some things you didn’t know about the show and its various (and amazing) cast members. Here are 10 Things You Didn’t Know About One Tree Hill.
10. One Tree Hill was actually supposed to be a feature length film called Ravens but after four years of pleading with creator Mark Schwahn, executive producers Brian Robbins, Mike Tollin and Joe Davola succeeded in having him turn it into a TV series instead. While the film thankfully gave way to an amazing television series, we wouldn’t say no to a One Tree Hill reunion movie now!
9. Wilmington, North Carolina renamed a street to One Tree Hill Way in honor of the show shooting there for all of its nine seasons. Many of the set locations can still be visited in Wilmington and fans often flock to it. In real life Haley’s and Peyton’s houses are actually just across the street from each other, but unfortunately the river court was taken apart after the show ended. Before being filmed in North Carolina however, the whole show was set in Illinois but the network, then the WB, asked Schwahn to relocate it to a warmer climate.
