[TV] New “Bates Motel” Featurette Has First Look At Footage From The Show!


“Bates Motel,” the Psycho prequel from “Lost”‘s Carlton Cuse and “Friday Night Lights”‘ Kerry Ehrin, has just debuted a new featurette that highlights some actual footage from the show (the first real footage we’ve seen) along with some cast and crew interviews. If anything, it’s probably our best look yet at the tone and visual aesthetic we might be getting when this thing premieres next year.

“Bates Motel” serves as a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film, “Psycho,” and promises to give viewers and intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates’ (Freddie Highmore) psyche unravels through his teenage years and just how deeply intricate his relationship to his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga), truly is.

Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Mike Vogel, Nicola Pletz and Olivia Cooke also star. A&E is currently filming the series in Vancouver, for an early 2013 premiere.

    Doesn’t take place along the original timeline? Norman Bates in high school. Wow this looks like very disappointing.

      mfcmk1 from what i understand this is prequel type deal but it’s set in today’s time.

        I don’t like like one bit. I really wish they would have kept it with the original timeline.

          I think it looks amazing but I am a little dissapointed in the modernization of it.

  • That looks FANTASTIC. Wow. And I didn’t realize they were merely using Psycho for “inspiration”… very clever idea.

    Why do they have to make everything contemporary???!!! Would it not be interesting in it’s original era??? What’s this 90210 for the tween generation???… I know, I know, I ask too many questions. HA!!! 😮 Hopefully, it will rock!!! 🙂

    • Looks good. Clever move to make it contemporary. That way we don’t get to compare it that much with Hitchcock’s unbeatable original. 🙂

    With a present day setting and a Bates sibling, this is probably going to be absolute crap.
