Only a week to go till A&E unveils their much hyped PSYCHO tie in BATES MOTEL and I for one am looking forward to seeing where they head with this whole notion. Starring Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke and Nicola Peltz, BATES MOTEL is going to tell us the tale of young Norman and his slightly controlling mother Norma.
â€śIn â€śBates Motel,â€ť 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 isnâ€™t quite what it seems, and the locals arenâ€™t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Batesâ€™ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive â€“ and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.â€ť
The show debuts on Monday March 18th at 10 PM on A&E.
So, what I’ve got for you tonight is the opening six minutes of the pilot episode which certainly sets up the tone for things to come. Check it out!!
