I am Kerry Ehrin, the co-creator and co-showrunner of BATES MOTEL, and I write the characters of Norma and Norman Bates for a living. Ask Me Anything!
Hey there, reddit and /r/IAMA fans! I'm Kerry Ehrin, the showrunner/writer of A&E's "Bates Motel," which returns for a third season TONIGHT on A&E at 9/8c. I write the show, along with my fellow showrunner, Carlton Cuse.
In case you need to catch up, full episodes of BATES MOTEL are available online and On Demand: http://www.aetv.com/bates-motel
I'm a native of Los Angeles, and have also been a writer/producer on such series as "Friday Night Lights," "Parenthood" and "Boston Legal." Whether writing the characters of Norma and Norman Bates, Tami and Coach Taylor, or the Braverman's, I find that a family drama is a family drama.
Thank you so much for all of your great questions! I seriously could talk about this all day. I hope you enjoy this season: we are incredibly proud of it and feel it is our best yet! Please follow me on Twitter @KE8. Thank you so much! Love and peace.
Victoria's helping me get started today. Please go ahead and ask me anything!
