First Full Trailer for A&E’s ‘Bates Motel’
The first full trailer for A&E’s upcoming prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Psycho has been released, and it’s pretty impressive. Premiering on A&E March 18th, Bates Motel offers a different take on the story of Norman Bates and his mother. The drama comes from executive producers Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights), and stars Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga as Norman and Norma Bates. I have high hopes for this one, so much so, that I am not only reviewing it, but I might also be launching a podcast dedicated to the series. More to come. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
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.
