We’ve heard a few grumblings about “Bates Motel” taking a sort of “kitchen sink” approach to the tale of Norman Bates’ early years, but we’re loving how “Twin Peaks-y” the show has turned out to be.
A&E has released a new promo for the upcoming Episode 1.03, “What’s Wrong with Norman?,” which shows off a bit more footage from the ep than what we’ve seen so far. Check it out, and be sure to read our “Bates Motel” review here in case you missed it.
A&E Network’s “Bates Motel” from executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights”) is 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 of Norman Bates and how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma, truly is.
The series stars Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed), Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Finding Neverland), Max Thieriot (Disconnect), Olivia Cooke (Blackout), and Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender). Season One also co-stars Nestor Carbonell (“Lost,” The Dark Knight Rises) and Mike Vogel (“Pan Am”). “Bates Motel” is produced by Universal Television for A&E Network. Cuse and Ehrin serve as executive producers for Carlton Cuse Productions.
