Courtesy of Deadline (with an embed from Film Thrasher) we have our first look at A&E’s upcoming Psycho prequel series, titled Bates Motel. In this trailer, we’re given a look at young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) who run the famous hotel from the classic Alfred Hitchcock movie. This trailer then breaks off into a series of interview clips with the actors halfway through, so we don’t actually get much in the way of footage. However, we are given a good enough look at the lead actors and the darkly satisfying tone of the show to give us high hopes for this one.
Bates Motel is set to premiere in March 2013.
