TV: Teaser Poster For A&E’s “Bates Motel”

In a few weeks “Lost” “Heroes” and “House M.D.” director Tucker Gates will be getting behind the camera to start filming the 1-hour pilot presentation of A&E’s upcoming series “Bates Motel,” which serves as a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock horror classic Psycho and examines the twisted relationship between serial killer-to-be Norman Bates and his mother Norma. Vera Farmiga was recently locked as Norma Louise Bates who is described as passionate, and compelling, a smart, multidimensional character who is always capable of surprising us.

The Universal TV-produced Bates Motel has a 10-episode straight-to-series order for a 2013 premiere. Former “Lost” co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin (“Parenthood”) serve as writers-executive producers. “Bates Motel” had been developed as a miniseries when A&E bought it in January. When Cuse and Ehrin boarded the project two months later, they reworked it as a series and wrote several scripts. That prompted A&E’s July decision to forgo a pilot and go straight to series.

And now THR has a look at the teaser poster for the show! Head inside to check it out!

    I’m very interested in this and curious to see where they take this. I’m a huge fan of vets Farmiga as well.

    I LIKE IT! But I’m a bit iffy on A&E since they botched Bag of Bones.
