A&E has released the first 6-minutes of their new Psycho prequel series Bates Motel. I love the look and vibe of the series. It definitely has an Alfred Hitchcock vibe to it. It gives us a background on the death of Norman’s father, shows us the unsettling relationship between Norman and his mother, and takes us to the point where they arrive at the infamous hotel.
The series stars Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, Nicola Peltz, Nestor Carbonell, and Mike Vogel, and comes from executive producers Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights). Here's the synopsis...
In Bates Motel, following the tragic death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn't quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.
The series is set to premiere on Monday, March 18th at 10pm. Check out the first 6-minutes and let us know if you're in!
