Cool Contest alert: A&E Network and executive producer Carlton Cuse are letting fans have a say in the creation of the new original drama series “Bates Motel” starring Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore premiering this March.

Carlton wants help creating the fifteen-second opening title sequence for the series as part of a Facebook contest for fans.

The contest begins today, December 5 on www.facebook.com/BatesMotelAETV and runs through Thursday, January 3.

From the release

"We want to give fans the chance to participate in the show,” said Cuse. We're looking for an awesome fifteen-second title sequence that captures the feel of Bates Motel -- not as a slasher/horror show, but as a complex, character-based thriller."

The title sequence contest will live on Facebook and all entries will require fans tosubmit their visual idea via a fifteen-second video submission. Carlton will judge the submissions and ultimately choose the idea that best represents the mood, tone, and overall feel of the series. The prize will be $2,500 and the possibility that the winner’s idea will be brought to life as the title sequence of “Bates Motel.”

“Bates Motel,” serves a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film “Psycho” where fans will find a teenage Norman Bates and his beautiful mother, Norma, at the start of their journey as the owners of the famed Bates Motel.

 “Bates Motel” is produced by Universal Television for A&E Network. Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin serve as executive producers for Carlton Cuse Productions.
