  • show Description
  • Set in the fictional small town of Tree Hill, NC, this teen-driven drama tells the story of two half brothers, who share a last name and nothing else. Brooding, blue-collar Lucas is a talented street-side basketball player, but his skills are appreciated only by his friends at the river court. Popular, affluent Nathan basks in the hero-worship of the town, as the star of his high school team. And both boys are the son of former college ball player, Dan Scott, whose long ago choice to abandon Lucas and his mother Karen, will haunt him long into his life with wife Deb, and their son Nathan. Until now, Dan has managed to keep his two sons far from each other. But the past and present collide sharply when Tree Hill's basketball coach recruits Lucas for his team, much to the chagrin of Nathan and Daddy Dan. And the siblings natural rivalry only intensifies when they set their sights on the same girl, Peyton Sawyer. The residue of the past lingers far into the future for the residents of Tree Hill, even as a new generation is rising. Tree Hill follows the lives and loves of these two brothers, their friends and their family as they navigate high school, marriage, and finally...adulthood. One Tree Hill theme song: I don't want to be by Gavin DeGraw I don't want to be Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately All I have to do Is think of me and I have peace of mind I'm tired of looking 'round rooms Wondering what I've got to do Or who I'm supposed to be I don't want to be anything other than memoreless

    • "One Tree Hill" is a track of the album The Joshua Tree by U2. It was later said by executive producer Mark Schwahn that when he was coming up with the ideas for this show, he had intentionally wanted it to be called "The Ravens", but decided that was too sports-oriented. Since at the time he was listening to the song "One Tree Hill", he decided to name the town Tree Hill and to name the show One Tree Hill.

    • Lucas: (To Peyton) It's me inside your head, you know, the song... It's lyrics from the song Linoleum by NOFX on the album Punk in drublic.

It is yours. These lines are taken from the book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

    • In the scene where Peyton storms out of Nathan's car aftr he makes fun of Lucas for playing so badly, Nathan throws a CD out the car window, which Peyton then yells, "Damn it Nathan, that CD was hard to find!
