Former Awesomeness executive Shelley Zimmerman is teaming up with Kerry Ehrin.
Zimmerman will be president television at Ehrin’s Bad Attitude Entertainment. She’ll oversee development and produce new series for the company headed by the Morning Show exec producer and showrunner.
“Shelley brings a wealth of experience and knowledge and has great creative instincts, and is the perfect person to partner with as I look to expand my company and identify projects, both to write myself, and as an opportunity to foster other writers’ voices,” said Ehrin.
Zimmerman was most recently executive vp live action studios at Awesomeness, a subsidiary of ViacomCBS. She opted not to renew her contract as ViacomCBS’ Kids & Family group consolidated its live action production under Nickelodeon execs Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin.
“As a huge fan of Kerry’s work and creations, I am thrilled to partner with her to create new, exciting stories to join the exceptional content on Apple TV+,” said Zimmerman. “The opportunity to collaborate with someone as wildly talented as Kerry for a platform that is elevating the best in storytelling is truly a dream job.”
During her time at Awesomeness, Zimmerman worked on shows including Hulu’s Pen15 and Netflix’s Trinkets. Prior to that she was senior vp scripted programming at Warner Horizon, overseeing series including Pretty Little Liars and TNT’s Dallas sequel.
Ehrin, who has an overall deal with Apple, is currently overseeing season two of The Morning Show. Her credits also include Bates Motel, Parenthood and Friday Night Lights. She is repped by Rothman Brecher and attorney Phil Klein. Zimmerman is repped by attorney Logan Clare at Ziffren Brittenham.
