Where and when can I watch ‘One Tree Hill’ being filmed?

Jeff Hidek

Want to see Sophia Bush or James Lafferty? Well, we can’t guarantee an autograph, but with a little dedication and luck, it is possible to see how “One Tree Hill” is made.

“One Tree Hill” typically films around town from late summer to mid-December and from February to April, depending on its TV schedule. They must file permits to film in most cities and counties, and when that filming will cause traffic backups or could affect the public significantly, the StarNews will report it at StarNewsOnline.com/OneTreeHill.

If you are hoping to stumble across filming while you are here, keep an eye out for small signs at intersections that say “OTH” or “TRP” (Tollin/Robbins productions). They’ll usually point the way to filming locations. But please note that filming is often on private property, so you might not have any access or even a good place to watch.

You should have good luck scoping out some of the usual suspects, like the Clothes Over Bros. storefront at Front and Grace streets or along the riverfront in downtown Wilmington. For an updated map of popular locations, check out our Google map at StarNewsOnline.com/OneTreeHill.

You also can take a self-guided tour with the locations list distributed by the Cape Fear Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau at 24 N. Third St.

The best source to find out what is filming when, though, is the fans. Message boards like this one at http://othforums.com/index.php?board=4.0 is chock full of details from fans on the streets of Wilmington, with sometimes hourly updates of who has been spotted where.
