‘Bates Motel’ Star, Co-Showrunner Sell Comedy Project to NBC

22 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Bates Motel” cast and crew seems to keep it in the family off-screen as well, as the A&E drama’s co-showrunner Kerry Ehrin and star Freddie Highmore have sold a comedy script to NBC.

The still-untitled half-hour single camera romantic comedy is set in the world of venture capitalism and tells the story of the intimate relationship between an overly emotional, but talented, female executive and her ambitious and eccentric young British assistant. Ehrin and Highmore reportedly came up with the idea while attending the Critics Choice Awards.

This marks the first script where Highmore, who just graduated from Cambridge University, will be credited as a writer. It has not been determined if he will appear in the show.

Ehrin is repped by Rothman Brecher Agency and Highmore is repped by Arg.

Network PR Vet Alison Rou Launches Showrunner-Focused Shingle

14 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Network PR vet Alison Rou has exited her post at ABC to launch Anchor Media Strategy, a praisery focused on repping showrunners.

Rou said she sees an opening for a showrunner-centric shingle now that the hyphenates who run TV series are increasingly becoming boldface names, thanks to social media and heightened consumer media coverage of all things entertainment.

Rou’s initial client list at L.A.-based Anchor Media includes Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals”), Kerry Ehrin (“Bates Motel”), Erica Messer (“Criminal Minds”), Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters (“Resurrection”) John Lehr and Nancy Hower (Hulu’s “Quick Draw”), Ilene Chaiken (“Empire”) and drama vet Liz Tigelaar.

Anchor Media is also repping the Atx Television Festival in Austin, Texas, which will stage its fourth edition next June.

Rou is a respected exec who was most recently on her second tour of duty at ABC, where she was VP of communications. »

Bates Motel Cast and Writers Talk Season 3

4 August 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in April, Bates Motel got the green light for a third season that is scheduled to air next year. At Comic Con, Daily Dead caught up with the show’s writers, Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, to see what they had in store for Season 3. Stars Vera Farmiga, Nestor Carbonell and Olivia Cooke also gave us their thoughts on their characters in Season 2 and where they’re headed.

Are there times when you have a lot of sympathy for Norma and, at the same time, hate her character? How do you feel playing such a dynamic character?

Vera Farmiga: I do, but that’s not important how I feel. I have been appointed as her court-appointed lawyer in her defence, so it doesn’t really matter how I feel. I know she does things wrong; they’re not the choices I would necessarily make as a mother. But »

Is it Time to Expand the Emmys Best Drama Series Category to Ten Slots?

31 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Should the top drama category at the Emmys be expanded? The answer from many in the biz is a resounding yes. After all, we are living in a time of smallscreen riches. The elite competition has been so tough and so strong — from AMC’s gritty contemporary meth opera “Breaking Bad” to PBS’ high-brow period soap “Downton Abbey” to the new tough guys on the block at HBO’s “True Detective” — that it makes sense to expand from six to 10 nominees.

“It’s absolutely the time to consider whether to expand or not,” says Roma Khanna, president, Television Group & Digital, MGM, which produces History’s drama series “Vikings” and FX’s miniseries “Fargo.” “The number of phenomenal shows in the marketplace right now is more than we’ve ever seen, and the number of outlets has increased.”

Bates Motel Cast, Ep Talk Norma's 'Innocence' and Romero's Backstory, Defend 'Desperate' Finale Kiss

28 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Norma and Norman Bates weren’t the only folks whose world views began to diverge during Season 2 of A&E’s Bates Motel.

As executive producer Kerry Ehrin told Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite, series stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore found themselves taking very different approaches to their scenes — i.e. their face-off in the parking lot outside the community theater — which wound up adding rich layers to their characters and performances.

Comic-Con: How ‘Bates Motel’ Makes Norman and His Mom More Likable (Guest Blog)

27 July 2014 7:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

At the intimate panel for “Bates Motel” at Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego on Friday, the show's screenwriters revealed that Norman Bates will go where Norman hasn't gone before. Most film enthusiasts are familiar with Norman, the character played by Anthony Perkins in Alfred Hitchcock‘s iconic film “Psycho.” While the story is moving forward towards the eminent confrontation between Norman and his mother in A&E's version, it won't necessarily follow a linear progression, say screenwriters Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin.

26 July 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Fans of A&E’s Bates Motel have seen the dark sides of Norman Bates and his mother, Norma Louise, but the new comedically staged auditions of actors Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, and others reveal the funnier side of the people who play the motel operators and the surrounding townsfolk of White Pine Bay. We have the mock audition video that was revealed at Comic-Con.

Entertainment Weekly unveiled the mock Bates Motel audition tape online that features Freddie Highmore doing a Spider-Man impression, Vera Farmiga busting out some Ukrainian folk dance moves, Olivia Cooke walking with an oxygen tank and trying to get a light for her cigarette, and Nestor Carbonell innocently sporting an “I Was On Lost” T-shirt and pointing out how similar he looks to Anthony Perkins. The complete second season of Bates Motel hits home media on October 7th.

Bates Motel Comic-Con Panel Recap: A Look Back at the Insane Second Season, and a Promise for More Creepiness to Come

26 July 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Bates Motel has never been a show that was afraid to “go there.”  With a second season that saw many supporting characters sent away or killed, a tense showdown with drug trading, and that mother and son kiss that went on just a bit too long, showrunners and creators Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin have a lot to live up to with their upcoming third season of the A&E show. Along with cast members Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Olivia Cooke, and Nestor Carbonell on hand, the panel reflected back on the insanity and never before seen hilarity of the second season, while teasing fans slightly with a special guest appearance, if the show will ever seen any character spillover from the original Psycho, and what the cast themselves would like to see for their characters in the upcoming season.  Hit the jump for the Bates Motel Comic-Con panel recap highlights. »

'Bates Motel' at Comic-Con: Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga talk about the kiss

25 July 2014 9:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Near the end of season two, A&E’s Bates Motel gave a tantalizing glimpse of teen Norman Bates experiencing the personality split integral to his later-life behavior. Since the character has already racked up a body count, the next question might be when he’ll begin wearing his mother’s clothes. In a discussion after the Bates Motel Comic-Con panel in San Diego Friday afternoon, star Freddie Highmore addressed the inevitable.

“It’s going to come at some point, isn’t it? I can see Norman sitting down in her room in front of the mirror and thinking ‘Oh, »

Comic-Con: What You Can Expect from Bates Motel Season 3

25 July 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

This afternoon, at Comic-Con, Shock Till You Drop was present for a slew of Bates Motel interviews. While some of the discussion of these interviews was anchored to season two chatter, there was some talk about season 3 and what we can expect when the show returns to A&E in early 2015. For the actors, it was tough to draw any information because they all admitted they had not received any scripts yet. You see, Bates Motel season 3 doesn't begin shooting until October in Vancouver. Writers-producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, however, were a bit easier to get intel from.

Watch Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore audition for 'Bates Motel'

25 July 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Finding the perfect actors for your show is a painstaking art: A few right moves, and you can back up an Emmy truck next to that Brinks truck. A couple of wrong moves, and the whole project is a disaster.

Bates Motel executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin certainly had their hands full when they set out to cast their contemporary Pyscho prequel for A&E. At Comic-Con on Friday, they treated the audience to a behind-the-scenes look at Bates’ audition process, screening footage of Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke, and Max Thieriot trying on their character for the first time. »

#SDCC14: What We Know So Far About Bates Motel Season 3; Updated with Returning Cast News

25 July 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We just left the Sdcc press room for "Bates Motel," and while showrunners Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin are saving the big announcements for today's panel, we did glean a few clues of what's ahead in Season 3.

First we spoke with Norma Bates herself, Vera Farmiga. When asked how she reconciles Norma's behavior in the series, Vera said she sees herself as Norma's "court appointed lawyer in her defense" and "approaches her with outright compassion."

She focuses on what she appreciates about the character; Norma's "terribly flawed but trying to be the best mother she can be." She had a very grim upbringing with no role model, and her relationship with Norman is a "lifejacket." Theirs is a noble love, and Norma is a "lioness with a lame cub."

She couldn't tell us much about the upcoming third season as she hasn't seen a script yet (shooting begins in October »

Vera Farmiga doesn't get why that 'Bates Motel' kiss was a big deal

25 July 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When the Bates Motel cast stopped by EW’s Comic-Con hangout, there was one central topic of discussion: that kiss.

Fans know the one. When Norman decided he wanted to kill himself in the season 2 finale, Norma found him out in the woods, gun in hand. There, she finally revealed the fact that he was behind his own father’s murder. But to stop him from pulling the trigger, Norma kissed him like she meant it. It was the moment fans had been waiting for, and it was one that executive producer Kerry Ehrin revealed to us was Freddie Highmore’s idea. »

Bates Motel at #SDCC14: Take a Tour of Norman's Taxidermy Workshop; Season 3 Teaser Art

24 July 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

When A&E announced they were recreating Norman Bates' basement on the Sdcc show floor, we thought it sounded pretty cool; and now that we've toured it, we can assure you that it is! Check out our image gallery along with Season 3's teaser art.

"Bates Motel's" Comic-Con exhibit, which allows fans to interact with the taxidermy studio, contains props similar to those used on the set of the series. It also provides an opportunity to create a custom Gif with the infamous taxidermic bird inspired by the world of Alfred Hitchcock.

You can see our own Andrew Kasch along with yours truly and Uncle Creepy in said GIFs at the bottom of the page.

In addition, fans can pick up a “Bates Motel” themed temporary tattoo designed by the geek-loving artists from A&E’s upcoming series “Epic Ink.”

You'll find the basement in Booth #4016/4018. Just look for the big "Bates Motel" sign! »
