New Trailer for 'Bates Motel'

By December 19, 2012

 Bates MotelA new behind-the-scenes trailer for the upcoming TV series, Bates Motel, has just been released by cable network A&E. Starring Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his controlling mother, Norma, Bates Motel is something of a coming-of-age tale about how Norman became Norman.

The show takes place during Norman's teen years, well before the events depicted in Alfred Hitchcock's classic Psycho (1960), and reveals the backstory of how his mother's twisted love damaged him and turned him into a serial killer.

But instead of the show taking place in the 1960s, executive producer Carlton Cuse (Lost) decided to set the story in contemporary times. The show also co-stars Max Thierior as Norman's older brother, Dylan, and Nestor Carbonell and Mike Vogel as a pair of local cops.

Bates Motel is set to air 10 episodes beginning in March 2013.
