Freddie Highmore and Kerry Ehrin have teamed up for an UNTITLED NBC ROMANTIC COMEDY SERIES at NBC. The project, which marks Highmore’s writing debut, is set in the world of venture capitalism and follows the relationship between an overly emotional but business-minded female executive and her ambitious young British assistant. Highmore and Ehrin will both pen the script and executive produce the project.
Highmore started out young, appearing in his breakout role in “Finding Neverland” at just 12 years old, before going on to starring turns in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “August Rush,” and “The Spiderwick Chronicles.” He currently stars as Norman Bates on the A&E prequel series “Bates Motel,” based on the classic Hitchcock film “Psycho.” Next up, Highmore will lend his voice to the animated film “The Canterville Ghost,” along with fellow Brits Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and Toby Jones.
Ehrin is the co-showrunner of “Bates Motel” who is also known for her work on “Boston Public,” “Friday Night Lights,” and “Parenthood.” Ehrin also penned the scripts for the 1996 comedy “Mr. Wrong” and Disney’s 1999 version of “Inspector Gadget” starring Matthew Broderick and Rupert Everett.
Highmore is repped by Artist Rights Group. Ehrin is repped by Rothman Brecher.
