A troubled youth becomes embroiled in the lives of a close-knit group of people in the wealthy, upper-class neighborhood of Newport Beach, Orange County, California.
Due to labor union salary rules about filming outside of Los Angeles County, the show was filmed at Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach (forty miles away from the actual Newport Beach) to reduce filming costs.

In Season 3, when Ryan is with Sadie in the pool house, Seth finds the door locked when he tries to enter and states "when did this door ever have a lock." Ryan mentions he added it for privacy. In Season 1, when Hailey has the huge New Years party, she locks Ryan and Seth in the pool house, so they won't spoil her fun.
For the first half of season one, Rachel Bilson (Summer) and Melinda Clarke (Julie) were credited as guest stars, even though Rachel Bilson appeared in each episode. From the fourteenth episode on, they were credited on the theme song as regulars.
