Last night I was given the assignment to cover the One Tree Hill soundtrack CD signing in the city. I had never watched the show, but I recognized one of the stars, Chad Michael Murray, from the movie "Freaky Friday."
Since I wasn't able to call the PR contact in advance, my name was not on the press list, so I flashed some credentials and was able to talk my way into the press junket.
I met each of the cast members, all of them seemed very down to earth and friendly. Tyler Hilton was especially talkative and animated. Bethany Joy Lenz was very pretty and sweet. Chad, also nice, admitted that he has OCD, but declared that he was not a neat freak. After they left the crowd he was holding his fiance's hand, she's also from the show, but I actually didn't get to speak to her, which is why I can't recall her name.
Again, I've never watched the show, so I didnt ask any questions about it, lol. I was like "What's your fav song on the album?" But that was OK since my story was about the CD being released and the commotion it caused.
I had to give a draft of my story to my "editor" by 9:45 that night, so I only had an hour to write it, but here's what I had: One Tree Hill CD Signing
Here are some phtorazzi pics from the event.
