Facts about Ocean Drive...........
~ Episode One was actually two separate episodes at the beginning. The party was episode one whereas the day after was episode two. It was decided to combine the two into one episode to make the length slightly longer.
~ Did you know that Ocean Drive wasn't originally the title of the series. The series was called Parkdale, a fictional town where the Lanford family lived at. The name changed about five episodes into writing the series.
~ The character of Emma Lanford was originally being casted as Elizabeth Bogush who many know her from playing Jenny on Titans. Just like the name of the series, the character was recasted five episodes into writing the series. Emma was recasted as Teresa Hill who is mostly known from Aaron Spelling's Models Inc.
~ Originally Ocean Drive wasn't suppose to make it to the web. There was another series in mind that producer Mark Williams was working on which was to come to the web this summer instead.

~ Gordon Thompson (Bruce) and Julian Stone (James) were set to be the exact opposite characters at the beginning.
~ In writing the series a original character was cut from the list. The character Kurt Patterson was to be in the series, he was a friend of Will and Kate's. Upon thinking up storylines the character was cut. However he is still in the series' list of possible characters to come.
