The era of scary television shows continues! American Horror Story, The Walking Dead and 666 Park Avenue are apparently just the beginning. BATES MOTEL is the the imagined pre-quel to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. The show follows Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother (played by Vera Farmiga) in his early years….before she died, or was murdered. This show will answer all of the questions people may have had as to why Norman Bated ended up to be a psycho killer. He really did seem to be a gentle soul, so what drove him over the edge? It must have been complicated enough to develop an entire series around it, rather than just one movie.
Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, Safe House) who plays Norman’s mother, is an amazing actress and Freddie Highmore (The Golden Compass, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory) is a star on the rise. This show looks soooooo good. Get ready for the premiere on A&E in 2013!
