WBOC Sits Down With Criminal Minds Star Writer

Posted:

SMYRNA, Dela.- A team of profilers from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit use criminals to catch criminals, in the hit T.V. show Criminal Minds.

WBOC sat down with executive producer and writer Erica Messer.

"It's a really dark situation that you write about," Messer said, while describing the 'bizarre' series. 

Messer was back on Delmarva at the Smryna Opera House for a 'Criminal Minds Q & A.'

"Well growing up in Ocean City, Ocean Pines you were always on the beach; on the boardwalk, or working at hotels and restaurants," said Messer.

She has fans, lots of them. The line was wrapped around the Smyrna Opera House Saturday.

Some people came with DVDs, scripts and books in hand. 

"I watch all of the episodes, over, over and over again," said Ajsa Washington, of Dover. "I have all 17 seasons."

Washington said she just couldn't miss the rare opportunity to get inside the mind of one of the lead writers of her favorite show.

"It's kinda exciting to see somebody who you know, go from local to make it big," Washington said.

Messer says she just can't forget her roots. In fact, she placed one of the episodes in Salisbury. And as for her favorite episode, "the hundredth episode and we are about to have our 200th episode next year," Messer said. She added, " that's because it really hits home with one of our main characters. And you got a chance to see how the team worked as a family."

Messer wouldn't give away any spoilers but she did say fans can expect more great writing and acting from all of your favorite actors.
