"Bates Motel," serves as a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film, "Psycho," and promises to give viewers an intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates’ psyche unravels through his teenage years.
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.
As Norma leaves, Bradley (Nicola Peltz) walks in. She tells Norman, "Tag, you're it," as she returns the plant he brought her when she was in the hospital with her father. Bradley apologizes for not being able to talk to him when he visited, then hops in bed with him to watch old movies.
