ABOUT THE SHOW | The Beginning

One Tree HillAside from a love for hoops, it would seem that Lucas (Chad Michael Murray, Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls) and Nathan (James Lafferty, Emeril) are two young men with little in common, but they are bound by the dark secret that they share the same father.

Arrogant and assured, Nathan is the star of the high school basketball team and hails from a wealthy family. Quiet and driven, Lucas is the only child of a single working mom. He is also a legendary playground basketball player. After growing up on opposite sides of the tracks in the same small town of Tree Hill, North Carolina, the two boys' lives suddenly collide when a twist of fate puts Lucas on Nathan's high school basketball team and the half-brothers compete, not only for control of the court, but also for the heart of Nathan's beautiful girlfriend Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton, MTV's TRL).'one-hour a week...isn't nearly enough' IN TOUCH MAGAZINE

Lucas' transition into Nathan's world creates an instant love triangle. Peyton is an intensely private and sensitive girl. She is a gifted artist, but for now, she keeps her art hidden from the world. Although she is Nathan's girlfriend, she quickly feels a connection to Lucas. Peyton lost her mother at a young age and, like Lucas, she knows the pain of growing up without a parent. She and Lucas both see the world from an outsider's point of view.

Nathan is painfully aware of the rapport between Peyton and Lucas, and it doesn't take him long to notice that Lucas' best friend, Haley (Bethany Joy Lenz, Guiding Light) is an unusual and intriguing girl. Because of her close friendship with Lucas, 'the next hot thing' SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWSHaley finds herself suddenly forced to deal with this strange new world of wealth and privilege.

Peyton's feisty best friend, Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush, Van Wilder), is a wealthy girl who quickly sets her sights on Lucas.

However, Brooke's sudden interest in Lucas adds to Peyton's confusion over her growing feelings for him.

While the teenagers struggle to find their places in the world, the adults in Tree Hill are dealing with the residue of decisions they made years ago. Nathan's father Dan (Paul Johansson, John Q) and Lucas' mother Karen (Moira Kelly, The West Wing) were high school sweethearts. When Karen became pregnant during their senior year, she was devastated by Dan's decision to put his own life and 'gets your heart racing' THE STAR LEDGERcareer first. He went off to college on a basketball scholarship, leaving Karen behind to raise their son Lucas alone. When Dan's dream of a basketball career didn't work out, he returned to town with the wife he met in college and his new son, Nathan. Now a wealthy businessman and one of the biggest fish in the small pond of Tree Hill, Dan lives his basketball dreams through Nathan.

Dan's actions have had a ripple effect on many people in the town. While Karen struggled to raise Lucas without a father, she remained friends with Dan's older brother Keith (Craig Sheffer, A River Runs Through It). Keith is Lucas' biological uncle and has served as his surrogate father over the years. His connection to Lucas is complicated by his attraction to Karen, and he is haunted by the possibility that he and Karen might have ended up together - and the hope that they still could. Karen's entire adult life has been focused on her son, but now that 'intense' THE SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINERhe's taking his first steps into a new world, she knows she can't protect him anymore.

He knows he is partly responsible for Dan's decision to not give up his scholarship when Karen became pregnant, 'breakout' SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWSand he has to juggle conflicting responsibilities and loyalties toward the two boys.
