Perhaps in an attempt to crank up the rating for both series, "One Tree Hill" and "Life Unexpected" will be doing a crossover episode on October 12. Two characters from "Hill", Bethany Joy Galeotti's Haley and Kate Voegele's Mia will guest star in "Unexpected", sharing screen with Shiri Appleby's Cate.
In a way their worlds indeed collide with Haley and Mia's job as musician and Cate's profession as a radio jockey. According to Entertainment Weekly, Haley and Mia will travel to Portland to perform at a music festival sponsored by Cate's radio station. An insider said, "Haley and Cate are surprised to learn that they share a similar back story [as] mothers."
The CW is pairing up "One Tree Hill" and "Life Unexpected" on Tuesdays starting September 14. The network hopes "Hill" 3 million viewers will be a good lead-in for the relatively new show which averages in 2 million viewers.
