Your the A&E network and you want to start competing with the other networks like AMC and FX with their series Mad Men, The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, The Americans and Breaking Bad. But where do you go to find new shows?
Well, if you’re A&E, you might go to one of the masters: Alfred Hitchcock. That’s right, A&E is soon to release a new show that series producer Carlton Cuse describes as “One part Friday Night Lights, one part Lost, [and] one part Twin Peaks.” That show: the Psycho prequel Bates Motel.
Intrigued? We are too. Fortunately, we get to be a bit more than intrigued as the first six minutes of the show have been released by A&E.
Bates Motel stars Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother and debuts March 18th at 10 PM.
