OTH & Life Unexpected planning crossover episode?

According to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly, the CW is planning a crossover between fan favorited One Tree Hill and the sophomore show Life Unexpected.  Now that the two shows will be sharing Tuesday nights on the CW, the promotional staff is hoping that OTH fans will tune in to watch Life Unexpected when Haley (Bethany Joy Galleoti) and Mia (Kate Voegele) make a trip to Portland, Oregon (the setting of Life Unexpected) to perform at a concert sponsored by Life Unexpected's Cate's (Shiri Applby) radio station. 

As a fan of both shows, I'm interested to see how this works out.  I'm obviously more invested in the cliff hanger ending from last season of OTH but I am hopeful for more Mia this season and Life Unexpected was highly enjoyable during it's brief run in the winter of last season.  If you haven't seen it, it was promoted at Gilmore Girls meets Juno.  Basically Cate got pregnant in high school by the football star Baze and gave the child up for adoption, now 16 years later Cate is trying to start a life with her radio co-host Ryan when Lux (the daughter she put up for adoption) shows back up in her life trying to become emancipated form the foster system because she never got adopted.  The court denies her request but places her in the joint custody of Cate and Baze which of course leads to mixed feelings between the two and messes with Cate and Ryan's relationship.  As the season goes on Baze realizes he's in love with Cate who is set to wed Ryan. 

What do you think?  Will this crossover work out?  OTH fans will you tune in to watch Haley and Mia perform on the show?  Sound off in the comments...
