Fans will have access to the dark, twisted backstory and learn first hand just how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma, truly is and how she helped forge the most famous serial killer of them all. “Bates Motel” is produced by Universal Television for A&E Network.
Carlton Cuse ("Lost") and Kerry Ehrin ("Friday Night Lights") serve as executive producers for Carlton Cuse Productions.
Norma asks Norman (Freddie Highmore) if she can spend the night in his room, as she's too scared to be alone in hers. He offers to sleep on the floor, but she tells him not to be silly. As they curl up, she apologizes for making them move so much, and he apologizes for calling her crazy. They turn out the lights to go to sleep.
