Cable network A&E has released a new trailer and behind-the-scenes look at “Lost” producer Carlton Cuse’s upcoming “Bates Motel” TV series, a prequel (of sorts) to Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho”. Actually, from the sounds of it, it’s more of a re-imagining of the same story, only told differently.
Something like that.
Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s genre-defining film, “Psycho,” “Bates Motel” is a contemporary exploration of the formative years of Norman Bates’ relationship with his mother, Norma, and the world they inhabit. Viewers will have access to their dark, twisted back story and learn firsthand how Norma helped forge the most famous serial killer of them all.
“Bates Motel” will star Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, Nicole Peltz, Olivia Cooke and Nestor Carbonell.
The show premieres in 2013.
